Travel vaccinations in Salisbury

If you are travelling outside Europe or America, it is highly likely that you’ll need one or more travel vaccinations to protect you against certain illnesses, including Yellow Fever, Hepatitis A and B, Tetanus, Polio, Diptheria and Meningitis, among others. With travel vaccinations in Salisbury at Southern Independent Medical Practice, our team can provide a comprehensive A-Z of all the injections and preventive measures you’ll need to travel with complete peace of mind.

It is advisable to book a travel consultation with us at least 8-10 weeks prior to your trip – it’s the quickest way to access the right healthcare for your needs.

As we have a duty of care to our patients, and because processes and health risk advice is constantly reviewed, we do not carry out travel assessments on behalf of other GP practices or travel centres.

Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever is one of the nastier, more aggressive tropical diseases; it cannot be cured and its danger should not be underestimated. The rules about whether or not you need a Yellow Fever jab are complex, and it’s not a vaccination you can always access locally. Fortunately, Southern Independent Medical Practice is a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre – meaning you can access both the vaccine and all the advice you’ll need before travelling to a Yellow Fever zone.

What is Yellow Fever?

Yellow Fever is a disease transmitted by mosquitoes in tropical regions of South America and Africa. If you are bitten by an infected mosquito, you will likely experience symptoms after 3-6 days, including aches and pains, headache, loss of appetite, fever, nausea and vomiting. In around 15-25% of patients, these symptoms become more serious, resulting in acute haemorrhagic fever and ultimately organ failure.

Can Yellow Fever be treated?

No – which is why preventive measures are so important. As well as getting the Yellow Fever vaccination, you will need to be fastidious about avoiding mosquito bites with net, insect repellents and protective clothing.

Which countries require the Yellow Fever vaccination?

If you are travelling to Africa or South America it is likely that you will need the Yellow Fever vaccine – though the list of countries and their conditions is complex and always changing, which is why it’s best to consult your doctor at Southern Independent for travel advice well in advance of your departure.

What happens if I don’t get a
Yellow Fever vaccine?

A Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is a legal requirement if you are entering countries where there is a risk wither of contracting or spreading the disease. You will not be allowed entry into the country you are travelling to if you do not have your Yellow Fever vaccination certificate.

How far in advance do I need to get my Yellow Fever vaccination?

At least 10 days before you enter the country you are travelling to – but we strongly recommend you contact us well in advance to make sure you receive all the specialist travel advice you need.
