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 Tajikistan

One of the major attractions of Tajikistan are its mountains, some of which have elevation points higher than 2500 which could pose an altitude sickness threat. You can obtain altitude sickness medication and practice appropriate acclimatisation and gradual ascents to counter altitude sickness. Don’t forget, its 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 and offer you the relevant advice for your trip to Tajikistan.

Tajikistan has warm summers and cold winters – and in some parts polar winters so be warned. Check the weather for the period you are travelling, as you will need to pack adequately and take reasonable precautions.

Tap water is not considered safe in Tajikistan so stick to the bottled stuff. Don’t forget to also be mindful of foods washed in water and of ice cubes and as an extra precaution take some water purifying tablets or a water purification system with you on your trip.

If you like the food of Russia, you will like the food of Tajikistan. There are a couple of interesting things to try such as Plov, Sambusa and Dolmas. When drinking green tea, there is a little ritual that accompanies it. Try to follow it if you can.

Lots of different infections can be spread through insect bites, including Malaria. These are spread by mosquitoes. Symptoms can include fever, headache and severe joint, bone and muscular pain. Advice for these infections 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 Tajikistan.

Please check with your foreign office before travelling to Tajikistan as some areas have the occasional factional fights breaking out. Use sensible traveling precautions such as not walking out alone at night and not travelling unaccompanied to tribal areas. Please check legality when wanting to take photos as in some spots it is illegal to do so and please check if you are allowed to take anything out of the country before purchasing it, in particular stones and jewellery.
