Travel Vaccines

High Street Medical Center offer the complete range of travel vaccines.

We are the only registered Yellow Fever vaccine practice in West Waterford.

We endeavour to provide a comprehensive travel health service. This begins with giving our patients an accurate perspective on travel risk.

Travel, water and alcohol are the primary causative factors of patient morbidity when abroad.

With respect to infective illness, most are not the rare and unusual infections but similar ones to home.

Pathogens responsible are quite varied but include many of the ones for which vaccines are available including influenza and diptheria.

Vaccines not normally considered ‘travel vaccines’ have an important role to play in preventing travel related illness. High Street Medical can provide these vaccines as part of our comprehensive travel health programme.

The two main ones would be influenza vaccine and diptheria however there have been many cases of Hepatitis B, Hepatitis A, Varicella, Typhoid related to frequent travel.

We will offer up to date Zika virus advice.

We also offer advice on anti-malarial prophylaxis and appropriate prescriptions where required.

We source our information from the U.S. Centre of Communicable Diseases which our doctors have found to contain the most up-to-date information, alongside WHO advice.

If you wish to avail of our travel vaccination service, please make an appointment with one of our practice nurses for “Travel Vaccination.”

Please inform our administration staff of your ETD, duration of stay, locations and ETA and any other relevant information when booking the appointment.

This visit will involve a comprehensive risk assessment with both an experienced practice nurse and a doctor, information regarding and administration of vaccines, prescriptions if necessary, yellow fever certification if required.

Ideally, you should plan your attendance at least six weeks before you plan to travel, but there are likely to be protective benefits with advice/ vaccination closer to your travel date.
