Learn how to prepare for your trip and how to minimize your risk of illness when you are away.
You will receive advice specific to you, taking into consideration your itinerary and medical conditions. Also, you will be advised as to which medications and vaccinations are recommended. We suggest you visit the travel clinic 5-8 weeks prior to departure, although you may come closer to the date of departure, if necessary.
