Booked to have a blood test and vaccination. I have to say everything was no less than 5 stars, from the booking process to the appointment, the staff are very knowledgeable and super accommodating. I’m not great with needles but lovely Paige was very reassuring and professional, probably my best experience with needles as I did not feel a thing. Will definitely be using this clinic again. THANK YOU

Further Travel Health Advice for The Maldives

Dengue Fever precautions should be taken for travel to and within The Maldives. Dengue fever is caused by mosquito bites from a specific mosquito, which seems to be most active during daylight. There is no medical protection against dengue fever. What you can do is try to avoid mosquito bites and use mosquito repellent and a mosquito net. Our travel nurse will be best able to advise you.

The Maldives is generally warm. It can get quite wet at some points in the year though. Check the weather for the period you are travelling, as you will need to pack adequately and take reasonable precautions.

Tap water in resorts may or may not be safe. It is best to check with the hotel about drinking water for the region you are staying in.

In the resorts you will be able to find food that is tailored towards the tourist palate. Please be aware that this is a largely Muslim country so be respectful about alcohol consumption and fasting periods.

Lots of different infections can be spread through insect bites, including Dengue Fever, which is spread by mosquitoes. Symptoms can include fever, headache and severe joint, bone and muscular pain. Advice for Dengue Fever is listed above.

Make sure you have health insurance in place that will cover the full range of activities you plan to undertake while in The Maldives.

As most of your stay in The Maldives will be in a resort, you can feel fairly safe. As with all travelling though, be aware of your surroundings and always put your own safety first.
