Travel Vaccinations

The rise in worldwide tourism has seen an increase in people travelling to exotic destinations.

As we travel around the world we are exposed to diseases that don't normally occur in the UK. These are diseases against which we have no natural immunity and against which we are not routinely immunised in the UK. Some of these illnesses may not only spoil your holiday, they may also pose a serious risk to your health. 

Here at Preston Travel clinic we can advise on which vaccinations are required or recommended for the areas you are travelling to. To give you a personalised service we will ask for details of where you are travelling to, your medical history and your vaccination history. If you are unsure of your vaccination history you can check with your GP. To keep your vaccination record up to date at your GP surgery we will, with your consent, send a notification record to your GP detailing the vaccination(s) we have administered to you.  

We can vaccinate against the following diseases: Cholera; Diphtheria, Tetanus & Polio; Hepatitis A; Hepatitis B; Japanese Encephalitis; Meningitis; Rabies; Tick-Borne Encephalitis; Typhoid; Yellow Fever. 

Hajj and Umrah Vaccination Requirements and Recommendations* 

On 22 June 2020, the Saudi Ministry of Hajj & Umrah released an official statement which announced that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, pilgrims from outside Saudi Arabia will not be permitted to enter the country to perform Hajj. Only a very limited number of Muslims, who already reside in Saudi Arabia, will be allowed to perform Hajj 1441H (2020). A ban on Umrah also remains in place.
