Travel Medicine

Be prepared for your travels and ensure you receive the necessary prophylaxis and vaccination programs in time for them to take effect. You also need to be aware of health risks and how to avoid them when traveling to a new country. The UPANDRUNNING travel service, run by our experienced team of nurses, will:

  • Establish baseline health
  • Offer individual, general and country specific travel advice
  • Prescribe the relevant medication or prophylaxis required in preparation for travel
  • Provide information sheets and websites highlighting travel risks
  • Provide vaccination programs and boosters
  • Provide travel first aid kit information sheets

Vaccines we typically carry include:

  • Hepatitis A (Havrix 1440)
  • Hepatitis B (Engerix B)
  • Hepatitis A and B (Twinrix Adult)
  • Typhoid (Typhim Vi or Typherix)
