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.

Further Travel Health Advice for Israel

During the summer, Israel has a very hot, dry Mediterranean climate, and you must take care to keep yourself hydrated, whether touring cities, or relaxing at the beach. Drink lots of bottled water, or juices.

It is best not to drink the tap water in Israel. Carry bottled water with you, and also use bottled water for brushing your teeth, no matter which area you visit. Avoid ice cubes.

Israeli cuisine has been given a facelift in the past few decades, from the traditional matzo and brisket meals, and now has become much more inventive, and is, naturally, a culinary melting pot of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine. There are many varieties of fish, meat, and produce available in most restaurants and in fine hotels, but the favourites remain. A typical meal will probably contain mashed chickpeas, flat bread, such as pita, hummus, and chicken cutlets known as schnitzel, but in Israel, lunch is often considered the main meal. Mint tea and mint lemonade are high on the list of favourite beverages, although coffee is not a far second.

In Israel, generally, health care services are very good. It is important to find out more before travelling to remote locales, such as the Negev. Arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need, since private health care providers might expect payment in cash.

Protect yourself, and your family, with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any unusual activities, such as water sports.
