Travel Advice

 

At Central City Medical Centre we offer a full range of travel vaccinations at competitive prices and are an Approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

 

If possible, it is important to come and see us 4-6 weeks prior to departure as the immunizations take a couple of weeks to be effective and some require multiple doses.

 

Whilst individual requirements may vary the standard adult schedules for typical immunizations are as follows (accelerated, slightly less effective, courses in brackets)

 

  • Hepatitis A: 0, 6-12 months

  • Hepatitis B: 0, 1, 6 month (0,7,21 days, 12 months)

  • Typhoid: 4 tablets over a week, booster every 5 years

  • Polio: Single booster dose 10 yearly

  • Tetanus & Diphtheria: Single booster 10 yearly

  • Rabies: 0,7 & 28(21) days, 2 yearly booster or blood test
