Incredible service – so helpful
Excellent service! Chazile went above and beyond to prepare me for my travels to south east Asia. Very kind, sharp and added helpful bits of information that will be useful during my travels. Even created a vaccine booklet for me that I asked for to keep track of my vaccines for the future. Highly recommended The London Vaccination Clinic. Thanks again Chazile 🙂 Nick

Travel vacines

Attended a consultation for travel vacines, the nurse explained everything with care, provided good advice. We then add a follow up consultation with a different nurse for the vaccines and was also very kind and professional. Was very impressed, we did not feel pressured to have more vacines then reasonable and both nurses gave pricing information upfront.

Very positive experience

Really easy to book and the nurse who I saw in Liverpool Street was really kind and helpful. She went through my vaccination history, what I needed for my trip and explained everything I needed to know ahead of administrating the vaccine I needed.
I am glad I arrived early as the venue was tricky to find as the name of the building has changed so doesn’t match Google maps. Put me in a slight panic as I thought I was going to miss my appointment but I found it in the end!

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside…

My nurse was a beautiful soul inside and out. I have a fear of needles and she was so patient and reassuring from beginning to end. She asked me questions, helped me to relax and made me feel like an individual rather than just someone on the list for the day.

Further Travel Health Advice for Lesotho

Schistosomiasis is a flatworm infection that is acquired through contact with affected fresh water streams, rivers or lakes. If you have been swimming or wading n such an environment and you think you may have been exposed, or have contacted schistosomiasis, seek professional medical help. Schistosomiasis is present in Lesotho so please take precautions

Lesotho is not called the Kingdom in the Sky for nothing. There are many parts of the country that are high in altitude. As such, altitude sickness may present a problem. You can obtain altitude sickness medication and practice appropriate acclimatisation and gradual ascents to counter altitude sickness. Don’t forget, it’s not just your climbing altitude but your sleeping altitude as well that must be considered. Our travel nurse will be able to discuss these with you.

Lesotho is warm for most of the year – although in the winter the nights can be very cold indeed. There are occasional thunderstorms and sometimes snow on the mountains. Please check the weather for the time and areas you are travelling to so that you can adequately prepare,

Stick to the bottled stuff in Lesotho as tap water is not safe. Bottled water is readily available but be careful of vendors selling drinks in pre-used bottles as they are not always cleaned to the best standard.

There is plenty of western food in Lesotho so finding something familiar to eat should not be a problem. Why not try the local beer (Maluti) at the world’s highest pub while you’re here.

Lots of different infections can be spread through animal and insect bites, including Rabies. Please make sure you have had your shots before travelling.

Make sure you have health insurance in place that will cover the full range of activities you plan to undertake while in Lesotho, especially if trying adventure sports.

Lesotho has an exceptionally high rate of HIV so please take precautions. The hospitals are not always the cleanest so if you are accident prone, you might want to consider taking a sterile needle and dressing kit with you as part of your first aid package. Like most places in the world, crime does happen here so please exercise some common sense when travelling. Don’t walk alone, especially in places you don’t know and when driving, be aware as car-jacking’s do happen here.
