Travel Vaccinations for New Zealand

The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to New Zealand

Where else but in New Zealand can you walk on an ancient glacier, bask on a white sandy beach, and go kayaking through a fjord? This and so much more awaits you in extraordinary New Zealand, where you can luxuriate in a cruise through the Bay of Islands, or for a true taste of nature, take the coast to coast walk from the Tasman to the Pacific. In the culinary capital, Wellington, enjoy sumptuous dining in Courtney Place’s fine cafés and restaurants.

Spend some time in picturesque Auckland, and then treat yourself to a wine tour through Kumeu and Matakana wineries where you can sample some of New Zealand’s celebrated wines. You won’t want to miss seeing Torrent Bay at Abel Tasman National Park on the South Island. However, your first stop on your way to New Zealand should be a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, four to eight weeks before departure, so that you will be completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for New Zealand.

Advice for Travellers to all Destinations

The Vaccinations and Medications that are needed for travel vary from person-to-person. Everyone should have a personal risk assessment with a travel health professional to take into account a range of factors such as itinerary, medical condition, occupational and lifestyle risk factors and previous vaccination history.

All Travellers

All Travellers should ensure that they are up-to-date with Routine Vaccinations including Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and Measles, Mumps and Rubella.

Most Travellers

Most travellers will also need to consider a course or booster of Hepatitis A and Typhoid as there is a risk of these diseases across most parts of the world.

Some Travellers

Some Travellers may also be advised additional vaccinations such as Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis and Hepatitis B based on their individual risk assessment.

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 New Zealand

New Zealand is sub-tropical, but on the coast the climate is temperate. On the North Island in summer, January-February, temperatures can rise to 30C. You will find much cooler temperatures at higher elevations, but when in coastal areas, use a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher. Apply liberally and often. When on tour, remember to wear light clothing and bring lots of water with you.

Reports on the safety of drinking water in New Zealand vary widely, and what this means for travellers is that to stay healthy, they should drink bottled water, which is cheap and can be had anywhere. Remember to drink often and whether it be water or fruit juices, replenish fluids throughout the day.

Seafood and fresh fish are a key part of the menu in New Zealand, and the choice ranges from mussels and crayfish to oysters, which are treated with unique “Pacific Rim” flair, combining diverse flavours, like sun-dried tomatoes, lemongrass, basil, ginger and coconut. New Zealand produces some of the world’s best lamb, beef and venison, with roast leg of lamb the National favourite, normally served with vegetables and sweet potato called Kumara. If you have a sweet tooth, treat yourself to a pavlova, a meringue topped with fruit and whipped cream. Most international beers are available here but first, sample one of the top-notch local brews, like Auckland’s Epic or Invercargill from the south. New Zealand produces excellent wines which consistently win worldwide awards, so do get to know Hawkes Bay, Martinborough and Marlborough wines, especially Sauvignon Blanc.

Should you require health care in New Zealand, there are fine hospitals and clinics across the country, and for the most part, the standard of care is good. For U.K. residents, some services can be provided in public facilities at no charge, with proof of residency. However it is important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need, in case cash payment is required in advance.

Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities, such as hiking coast to coast or kayaking.

Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are safe in New Zealand. There are incidences of petty theft in the larger cities and it is best to avoid carrying valuables with you.
