Travel Vaccinations for Qatar

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

The tiny oil-rich state of Qatar can be enormously surprising. With its Arabian Gulf coastline almost as long as the entire country, its vast expanse of desert, and its glittering capital, Doha, there is something here to please everyone. Play world class golf, take up dune bashing, or go skiing. Sand skiing. Ride a bicycle across the desert, or bask on one of Qatar’s beaches. The Museum of Islamic Art is a must, with Islamic relics dating back to the 7th century. Save some time to visit the capital, Doha, where you can dine and shop in luxury. Well before you are on your way to Qatar, make time for 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 travel to Qatar.

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.

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 Qatar

Qatar has a very hot desert climate with high humidity, and it is very important to drink a lot of water, and fruit juices, all through the day, no matter what your activities might be. Protect your skin with a good sunblock lotion, SPF20 or higher.

To stay healthy and enjoy your trip, it is important that you drink only bottled water. Also, use bottled water for brushing your teeth, and avoid using ice cubes.

Qatar has almost as many restaurants as there are foods available, from fine dining to fast food establishments. Hotel restaurants offer a dazzling choice of international cuisine, including Spanish, Italian, French, Greek and many others. Qatari food reflects influences from India and Iran, and more recently, North Africa, and focuses on seafood. One important traditional dish, called Machbous, is a richly spiced stew of rice with seafood, meat, or both, usually served on a communal platter. Juice bars are very much in evidence in Qatar, and coffee is a very important part of everyday life, especially rich, dark Turkish coffee.

If you need health care in Qatar, use a private clinic. There is a good infrastructure of health care here, both private and public, and major hotels have medical help available. It is always best to arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need.

Protect yourself, and your family, with adequate travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities.

Qatar is one of the safest countries in the world to visit.
