Wherever you’re going, make sure you’re well protected…
JDoc provides a travel advice and vaccination service, and can vaccinate against many preventable diseases, especially for those travelling to high-risk destinations.
If you’re planning to travel, especially to high-risk areas, you may need to be vaccinated. You don’t always need to, but consulting with a JDoc365 GP will help you understand which diseases may be a risk where you are going.
Some vaccinations are only available from JDoc365 and selected other private travel clinics. These include encephalitis, rabies, tuberculosis and yellow fever. JDoc365 can also offer vaccinations for diphtheria, polio and tetanus combined, along with typhoid, hepatitis A and cholera.
Accredited Yellow Fever Centre
JDoc365 is an Accredited Yellow Fever Centre. Consult with your JDoc365 doctor GP to find out if a yellow fever vaccination is necessary for your journey.
Many countries around the world will not accept travelers from an area prone to yellow fever unless they can prove to have been vaccinated against it. Some countries will not allow travelers to enter unless they have an ICVP (International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis).
Things To Consider
- The countries you are visitings
- If you are an aid worker
- The time of year you are travelling
- If you are in a medical setting
- Whether you are staying in a rural or urban area
- If you are working with animals
- Whether you are staying in a hotel or hostel, backpacking or camping
- If you are pregnant or attempting to become pregnant
- The length of your stay
- If you are breastfeeding
- Your activities during your stay
- Your age and your own overall health
Vaccinations should be administered at least eight weeks before you are due to travel. Some vaccinations involve multiple doses spread over several weeks. Your body needs time to develop an immunity from the vaccination before you expose yourself to live samples of the disease.
People with immune deficiencies may not be suitable to receive vaccinations. This can include conditions that affect your body’s immune system, such as HIV or AIDS, ongoing clinical trials, chemotherapy, or a bone marrow or organ transplant.
