Hepatitis A is a viral infection which causes an inflammation of the liver. In countries where hep A is prominent, many people catch it as a child. The infection tends to be mild in children but can occasionally cause complications. In adults, however, it can lead to liver damage or even liver failure. Although infection rates appear to be on the decrease, hepatitis A is endemic to Sri Lanka and the vaccination is recommended for all travellers.

Why do I need a consultation?
It is difficult to say which vaccines you need without asking a medical professional. Your itinerary, your medical history and the activities you have planned all affect which vaccinations you need. It is important that a trained travel nurse or pharmacist checks what you need.
Exactly the travel vaccinations you need - no more, no less.
During your consultation, our nurse or pharmacist will talk you through the health risks at your travel destinations to check which vaccines you need. If a vaccine is not essential, we will explain your options so you can decide whether you would like to have it.
Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.
- Cambodia is a risk country for malaria. Malaria affects many regions apart from the main cities, such as Phnom Penh, Angkor Wat, Siem Reap and Tonle Sap and you may not need malaria tablets if you’re going to major cities only.
- The risk of catching malaria is highest in Preah Vihear, Stung Treng, Ratanakiri and Mondolkiri.
- The nurse of pharmacist will check the latest advice for the areas you’re travelling to during your appointment and assess whether you need to use an antimalarial.
- Regardless of which part of Cambodia you’re travelling to, you should practise insect bite avoidance to reduce your risk of infection.
