Travel Vaccinations for Syria

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

The names of Syria’s legendary cities, Damascus, Aleppo, and Bosra, are almost larger than life, and although Syria is a major oil producer and exporter, the tale told by its long, multi-faceted history dominates. The culture and history of these ancient cities oozes from every mosque, souq, and monument, such as the Citadel and the Azem Palace. Marvel at the Umayyad Great Mosque, built on the site of a Roman temple, and visit the remains of a Roman wall and the temple of Jupiter. In Aleppo, a new wave of investors and entrepreneurs have contributed to the restoration of the old City, and hotels and restaurants bring in a thriving trade, while the ancient Citadel and its fortifications remain the most impressive landmark. Before you finalise preparations for your trip, set aside enough time for a visit to our Travel Health Clinic, to ensure that you are completely safe and up-to-date with the Vaccinations you need for Syria.

Advice for Travellers to all Destinations

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 Syria

Syria experiences extreme heat throughout most of the year, and the mercury can rise into the 40’s. Be sure that your skin is protected, with light, loose clothing, and wear lots of sunblock, and headcovering. Drink plenty of water and juices.

As is the case with most destinations overseas, in Syria, it is risky to drink the local water, although it is provided through public taps at mosques, for example. Drink only bottled water, and also use bottled water for brushing your teeth, even in top hotels. Avoid ice cubes.

Syrian food has won its way into the hearts of gourmets around the world, and you don’t have to eat Posh to eat well. From the popular mezze selection of grilled aubergine, cheese, yogurt, meats and vegetable dips, and up to 35 other succulent appetisers to the grilled or roasted meats cooked with a dizzying mix of spices and herbs, to the specialty dish of Aleppo, Kabab bil Karaz, meatballs cooked with sour cherries and spices, Syrian cuisine is an ongoing class in gastronomy. Coffee here is powerfully strong and is offered as a social custom. Fruit juice bars are everywhere you go, and offer a wide selection of fruits like mangos, grapefruit, pomegranates and oranges which you can combine. Lebanese and French wines are sold in major centres, as well as popular beers.

The health care system in Syria is not always dependable, and it is recommended that in case you require treatment, you use only private clinics. If you require health care services consult your hotel first and if possible, use a clinic in Damascus or Aleppo. 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 unusual activities.
