Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

Our Nurses can provide comprehensive travel health advice and arrange for appropriate immunisations. Please arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.

Both Hurstpierpoint and Hassocks Health Centres are authorised Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres.

Some Travel Advice

  1. Take a small first aid kit.
  2. Personal hygiene is essential.
  3. Beware bites from insects and animals. Many diseases are insect-borne and rabies is widespread in animals abroad.
  4. Be careful with raw vegetables, salads, fruits, shellfish and ice-cubes.
  5. Respect the power of the sun. Use sun creams regularly.
  6. Sexually transmitted diseases (including AIDS) are a major health threat throughout the world. Condoms offer some protection.
  7. If you need to take anti-malaria tablets remember you need to start one week before departure and continue for four weeks after you return.
  8. If you take regular medications, don't forget to take enough supply!
  9. Remember to arrange adequate medical travel insurance.
