Kuwait is in the Middle East at the tip of the Persian Gulf alongside Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran.

For such a tiny country, Kuwait, with the world’s 5th largest oil reserves, has so many attractions, and surprises for tourists. In Kuwait City, spend time lingering in the old Souq, now housed in a modern building. The market still retains the look and flavour of its ancient past, where you might spend a pleasant lunchtime sampling a range of delicacies. Along the Corniche, the largest aquarium in the Middle East dazzles with exotic specimens, and at the Tareq Rajab Museum, visitors can view the private collection of Islamic art once owned by Kuwait’s first minister of antiquities. Or perhaps the modern side of Kuwait, like the stunning triple towers, or the shops and restaurants are more to your taste. Whichever sites you plan to visit in Kuwait, be sure to begin by visiting our Travel Health Clinic, to ensure that you are completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for Kuwait.

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.
