TRAVEL CLINIC at SuperCare Pharmacy

  • Travel Clinic - Vaccinations & Services

    If you are planning to travel outside the UK, you may need to be vaccinated against some of the serious diseases found in other parts of the world that you could be exposed to whilst travelling abroad.

    Travel Clinic

    Through a private consultation, our trained professionals can advise you on the travel vaccinations you would require for your destination(s), to ensure you are protected and healthy during your trip. Wherever you are travelling to, we can provide you with a full range of health and travel advice, preventative treatment such as travel vaccines, tablets, other medicines and products such as anti-malaria medicines, insect repellents (DEET and Alcohol free), diarrhoea relief, water purification tablets, etc.

    Our trained professionals can administer travel vaccinations and provide anti-malarial medicine to both adults and children.

    Travel jabs

    You can also find out which travel jabs are necessary or recommended for the areas you will be visiting on the official NaTHNaC website TravelHealthPro. You can use the filter search to find information on your specific destination(s) with risk alerts and vaccine recommendations by country. For up to date information on disease outbreaks and incidents worldwide, click here for Outbreak Surveillance.

    Your travel itinerary and length of stay will better determine the right travel jabs for you, therefore a consultation with one of our trained professionals is essential. Individuals travelling for work purposes receive occupational health advice with appropriate health immunisations in addition to their travel consultation and vaccinations.

    Consultations are free of charge, and for our treatment prices please see our Travel Clinic Pricing Section.

    If you are a British traveller and have not had your MMR (Measles, Mumps & Rubella) and Tuberculosis jabs as part of UK’s childhood vaccination programme, we would advise immunisation.

    Travel Vaccination Certificates

    Some countries require you to have an International Certificate of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) before you enter.Travel Vaccination Certificates

    For example, Saudi Arabia requires proof of vaccination against certain types of meningitis for visitors arriving for Hajj Vaccination and Umrah Vaccination, Pakistan requires proof of Polio vaccination if you are planning to stay for over 4 weeks, and many tropical countries in Africa and South America will not accept travellers unless they can prove that they have received the Yellow Fever vaccine.

    We provide all necessary certificates with your vaccination.

    We keep a complete manual and electronic record of each vaccination administered; so, in the event of a lost certificate, we can trace our records and reissue another certificate at a small cost without the need of another vaccination.

    Vaccinations – Treatments – Services

    Anti-Malarials

    These come as a course of tablets. The regime will depend on the type of tablets and the length of stay in the malaria risk area. In addition, the area you travel to will determine which type of anti-malarial will work. During your appointment, will thoroughly discuss these with you.

We are a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and have been authorised by NaTHNaC (as the regulatory body for England, Wales and Northern Ireland), to administer yellow fever vaccine in accordance with International Health Regulations (2005).
  • Hajj & Umrah Vaccinations

    Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Makkah (Mecca), in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) is one of the largest gatherings of its kind in the world.

    The Ministry of Health of Saudi Arabia issue their requirements and recommendations for Hajj and Umrah annually.

    Performing the rituals of the Hajj and Umrah is demanding and often involves walking long distances in hot weather. Pilgrims must ensure that they are as physically fit as possible.

    All pilgrims who intend to undertake Hajj or Umrah and seasonal workers, are required to provide a valid vaccination certificate with a Quadrivalent (ACWY) meningococcal vaccine administered no less than 10 days prior to arrival in KSA in order to obtain a visa for entry.

    You should aim to get the ACWY jab at least two weeks before you travel. The course consists of one dose, Injected in the upper arm. Boosters aren’t currently recommended. However, you can get a booster five years after your last jab if you need it for a meningitis ACWY certificate. The certificate becomes valid 10 days after vaccination.

    We keep a complete manual and electronic record of each vaccination administered; so, in the event of a lost certificate, we can trace our records and reissue another certificate at a small cost without the need of another vaccination.

    Students: It is especially recommended that students attending university for the first time receive a single dose of Meningitis ACWY.

    The ACWY vaccine can cause mild side effects, such as redness and swelling at the injection site and tiredness. Some people also report having a high temperature as a result of the injection. In children, the vaccine can be given from birth.

    Additional precautions: Early treatment is vital – if you or a fellow traveller show symptoms of meningitis, seek medical attention immediately. The ACWY vaccine does not protect against meningitis B.

    Influenza is easily transmitted in crowded conditions. Where travel cannot be avoided, pilgrims in clinical risk groups for influenza should receive influenza vaccine annually from their usual healthcare provider.

    Vaccinations – Treatments – Services

    BCG (Tuberculosis)

    The BCG injection (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin vaccine) protects against Tuberculosis, commonly known as TB. TB is a serious infection which affects the lungs, but it can affect other parts of the body such as the bones, joints and kidneys. It can also cause meningitis. The best way of TB prevention is the BCG vaccine for children. BCG is not given as part of the routine NHS childhood vaccination schedule unless a baby is thought to have an increased risk of coming into contact with TB. This includes all babies born in some areas of inner-city London where TB rates are higher than in the rest of the country. We offer the BCG Injection to babies and children up to 5 years of age if not previously vaccinated, and to adults who have not previously been vaccinated but can present a recent Mantoux test report.

    Chickenpox (varicella)

    This protects against the varicella zoster virus that causes chickenpox. The vaccine is given as two separate injections, usually into the upper arm, four to eight weeks apart. It is recommended for certain individuals, such as healthcare workers and people who come into close contact with someone who has a weakened immune system. This is to lower the chances of infecting those at risk.

    Hepatitis B

    You can get infected with hepatitis B if you have contact with an infected person’s blood or other body fluids. For full protection, you will need three injections of hepatitis B vaccine over four to six months. Five year boosters are recommended for anyone thought to be at continuing risk of infection. People at risk of hepatitis B and who should therefore consider vaccination are:

    • People who inject drugs or have a partner who injects drugs
    • Men who have sex with men
    • People who change their sexual partners frequently
    • Babies born to infected mothers
    • Close family and sexual partners of someone with hepatitis B
    • People with any form of liver disease
    • Anyone who receives regular blood transfusions or blood products
    • People with chronic kidney disease
    • People travelling to high-risk countries
    • Male and female sex workers
    • People who work somewhere that places them at risk of contact with blood or body fluids, such as nurses, prison staff, doctors, dentists and laboratory staff
    • Prisoners
    • Families adopting/fostering children from high-risk countries

    HPV

    The HPV vaccine, also known as the Cervical Cancer Vaccine is usually given to girls over the age of 12 and up to the age of 18. According to Cancer Research UK, cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women under the age of 35. In the UK, 2,900 women a year are diagnosed with cervical cancer, that’s around eight women every day. It’s estimated that about 400 lives could be saved every year in the UK as a result of vaccinating girls before they are infected with HPV. The HPV vaccine consists of two injections into the upper arm spaced at least six, and not more than 24 months apart. Research has indicated that the HPV vaccine protects against cervical cancer for at least 20 years.

    Influenza

    Flu vaccination by injection, commonly known as the “flu jab” is to protect adults (and some children) at risk of flu and its complications. Flu can be unpleasant, but if you are otherwise healthy it will usually clear up on its own within a week. However, flu can be more severe in certain people, such as:

    • Anyone over the age of 65
    • Pregnant women
    • Children and adults with an underlying health condition (particularly long-term heart or respiratory disease)
    • Children and adults with weakened immune systems

    Anyone in these risk groups is more likely to develop potentially serious complications of flu, such as pneumonia (a lung infection), so it’s recommended that they have a flu vaccine every year to protect them.

    MMR - Measles/Mumps/Rubella

    MMR is a safe and effective combined vaccine that protects against 3 separate illnesses – measles, mumps and rubella (German measles) – in a single injection. The full course of MMR vaccination requires 2 doses.

    Meningitis B

    Meningitis and septicaemia caused by meningococcal group B bacteria can affect people of any age, but is most common in babies and young children. Meningococcal infections can be very serious, causing meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning), which can lead to severe brain damage, amputations and, in some cases, death. The Meningitis B vaccine will protect your baby against infection by meningococcal group B bacteria, which are responsible for more than 90% of meningococcal infections in young children. Babies given the Meningitis B vaccine alongside their other routine vaccinations at two and four months are likely to develop fever within the first 24 hours after vaccination. It’s important that you give your baby liquid paracetamol following vaccination to reduce the risk of fever. We will give you more information and advice at your vaccination appointment. Other common side effects include irritability and redness and tenderness at the injection site. The liquid paracetamol will also help with these symptoms. The schedule below shows the age and number of doses for the Meningitis B vaccine as recommended:

    Age Group Primary dose series Interval Booster?
    2-5 months 3 No less than 1 month Yes, at 12-15 months. In case of delay no later than 24 months
    Unvaccinated infants 6-11 months 2 No less than 2 month Yes, at 12-23 months with an interval of at least 2 months after the last primary dose
    Unvaccinated children, 12-23 months 2 No less than 2 month Yes, between 12-23 months after the last primary dose
    Children, 2-10 years 2 No less than 2 month No need yet established
    Those over 11 years 2 No less than 1 month No need yet established

    Meningitis C

    The Meningitis C (commonly called the Men C) vaccine protects against infection by meningococcal group C bacteria, which can cause two very serious illnesses, meningitis and septicaemia. Meningococcal disease can affect all age groups, but the rates of disease are highest in children under the age of 5, mainly babies under the age of 1. There’s a second peak in cases in young people aged between 15 and 19. The disease tends to strike in winter. Anyone, especially university students under the age of 25 who haven’t yet received a Men C vaccination should take a single catch-up dose to prevent the disease. The Men C vaccine  works very well and has slashed the levels of Men C disease. In fact, since the Men C vaccine was introduced in 1999, there has been a 95% decrease in cases of disease caused by meningitis C.

    Meningitis ACWY

    Cases of meningitis and septicaemia (blood poisoning) caused by Men W bacteria are rising, due to a particularly deadly strain. Older teenagers and university students are at high risk of infection because many of them mix closely with lots of new people, some of whom may unknowingly carry the meningococcal bacteria. Young teenagers, sixth formers and ‘fresher’ students going to university for the first time are advised to have a vaccination to prevent meningitis W disease ideally before the start of or in the first few weeks of the academic year. The highest risk of meningitis is in the first year of university, particularly the first few months. As the Men ACWY vaccine is being targeted at those at highest risk, students in their second year or above of university are not included in this vaccination programme. The Men ACWY vaccine is given by a single injection into the upper arm and protects against four different causes of meningitis and septicaemia – meningococcal (Men) A, C, W and Y diseases.

    Pneumococcal (PPV)

    The pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV) is given to people aged 65 and over, and to people at high risk due to long term health conditions. The pneumococcal vaccine protects against pneumococcal infections, which are caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae and can lead to pneumonia, septicaemia (a kind of blood poisoning) and meningitis. Pneumococcal infection can affect anyone.

    Shingles

    The Shingles vaccine is for individuals aged 50 and above. Also known as herpes zoster, Shingles is a painful skin rash caused by the reactivation of the chickenpox virus (varicella-zoster virus) in people who have previously had chickenpox. It begins with a burning sensation in the skin, followed by a rash of very painful fluid-filled blisters that can then burst and turn into sores before healing. Often an area on just one side of the body is affected, usually the chest but sometimes the head, face and eye.
