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

Incredible service – so helpful
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!
Thorough and helpful consult

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 Belize
Belize is tropical, and it is important to protect your skin from the intense rays of the sun. Humidity is almost always a factor. Use lots of sunblock with an SPF of at least 20, and seek shady areas where possible. Remember that the sun can burn you even when you are in the sea. Make a habit of carrying bottled water with you wherever you go.
It is never safe to drink the water in Belize, and to stay healthy, it is important that you drink only bottled water, which is cheap and widely available. Also use bottled water for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid using ice cubes.
The cuisine of Belize is a true melting pot of Caribbean, Spanish, Mexican and Mayan food, plus a little Kriol (Creole) thrown in for good measure. Naturally, seafood dominates, with fish, shrimp, conch and lobster dishes that are only limited to the chef’s imagination. Rice and beans usually show up as accompaniments with just about any main dish. If there were a National dish in Belize, it would be stew chicken, or stew beef, slow cooked with a generous mix of spices, in the Kriol style, or a Kriol style gumbo called Chimole. Belizean cuisine mostly bypasses vegetables, but tropical fruits, mangos, carambola, papaya and many others are plentiful. Belizean beer, called Belikin, is quite good, and for something special, treat yourself to a taste of good Caribbean rum.
If you need health care in Belize, it is always best to seek out a private clinic or doctor. In general the standard of care is quite good, however, do arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need.
Protect yourself, and your family, with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities.
In Belize, people are warm and friendly, however, take normal precautions when on tour or walking about Belize city. There is some incidence of petty theft in some tourist areas. Be cautious, and leave your valuables at home before your trip. Keep your cash and travellers’ cheques secure.
