Travel clinic

There are many reasons to travel, whether it is to explore the unknown, work, or to visit your mother country.

If you are planning to travel in the next few weeks, you may require vaccines and medications, which vary according to the destination or route chosen. The advice of a healthcare professional is recommended to ensure you have met the regulations of the country and obtained the necessary vaccines. Our physicians can review your vaccination booklet if you have it, so that you can leave your health worries behind and enjoy your trip fully. The suggested vaccines will be discussed and you will decide with which vaccine you want to proceed.

During the consultation, the physician will give you multiple prevention tricks based on your travel destination, the length of the trip, accommodation style and purpose of the trip.
