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.

Recommended for some travellers

Whether you will need any of the vaccines in this section depends on the region you're travelling to, the activities you have planned and your medical history.

Cholera £28 per dose

Like hepatitis A and typhoid, cholera is a food- and waterborne disease and you need to practise good food hygiene to reduce your risk of cholera. The cholera vaccine may be relevant for travellers going to rural areas as well as areas with poor sanitation. Your nurse or pharmacist will assess your cholera risk based on where you’re travelling to as well as the activities you have planned and make a recommendation as to whether you should have the vaccine.

Hepatitis B £45 per dose

Hepatitis B is a blood borne disease. It is transmitted during sex as well as via contaminated needles (for example when undergoing a medical procedure or a cosmetic procedure involving equipment that hasn’t been sterilised). The vaccine is usually recommended for travellers who are visiting a country where hepatitis B is endemic for a longer period of time as well as anyone likely to come in close contact with the local population (for example aid workers and volunteers). The nurse or pharmacist may also recommend it if you’re planning any activities that put you at a higher risk of injury. Hepatitis B can cause a range of symptoms. It can become chronic and cause liver damage.

Rabies £58 per dose

Rabies is a disease transmitted when you’re scratched or bitten by an animal that carries the disease. This could be any wild animal such as a bat or a fox but also a domestic animal such as a dog or cat. Although animals who have rabies will develop symptoms as the disease progresses, you can’t know for sure whether an animal carries it. Rabies is almost always fatal so it’s very important that you seek medical attention immediately if you’re bitten or scratched by an animal while in a country where rabies is endemic. The nurse or pharmacist may recommend the vaccine if you will be visiting rural areas with limited access to medical care or if you are planning to work with or handle animals. They may also recommend it if you’re staying for longer than one month.

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

Malaria is a serious and sometimes fatal disease transmitted by mosquitoes. You cannot be vaccinated against malaria.

Malaria Precautions

Malaria is a health risk in certain parts of Kenya.There is a very low risk of malaria in Nairobi, the areas immediately around Nairobi, and in the highlands above 2,500m. Malaria tablets aren’t recommended if you are only travelling to these areas, but you should take precautions and practise insect bite avoidance to reduce your risk.There is a high risk of malaria in the rest of Kenya, so you need to take antimalarial tablets in addition to using insect repellent and avoiding mosquito bites if you are travelling to these high risk areas. Using insect repellent containing at least 20% DEET, wearing long-sleeved clothing and sleeping under bed nets are very effective precautions which will help you avoid bites.
