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

At the southern tip of the necklace of islands known as the Grenadines, sits Grenada, the Isle of spice. In St. George’s, one of the most picturesque capitals in the Caribbean, take the hop on-hop off trolley on a tour along the Esplanade to old Fort George, built by the French in 1705, then climb the hill for a view of St. George’s and the careenage and colourful pastel houses. Later, tour spice plantations, or hike through Grand Etang national park. Leave time to relax on one of Grenada’s most scenic beaches, Grand Anse. Your first stop on your way to Grenada should be 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 Grenada.
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 should ensure that they are up-to-date with Routine Vaccinations including Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio and Measles, Mumps and Rubella.
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 may also be advised additional vaccinations such as Rabies, Japanese Encephalitis and Hepatitis B based on their individual risk assessment.

Further Travel Health Advice for Grenada
Grenada is just near Trinidad, at the southern tip of the Caribbean chain of islands, so you must prepare for intense heat, at times up to 30. You will need a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher. Apply liberally and often. At the beach and on tour, remember to wear head covering.
The tap water in Grenada is chlorinated and considered safe to drink, seasoned travellers seldom risk ruining their holiday by drinking water they are not accustomed to. Spring water and purified water is cheap and readily available. Bring lots with you wherever you go in Grenada, and replenish fluids throughout the day.
Grenada is called the island of spice and until recently was the world’s largest exporter of spices, such as nutmeg and mace, cinnamon, ginger and clove, among others, and all sorts of sweets are flavoured with nutmeg, like ice cream, syrup and jam. The National dish, called Oildown, combines salted meat, breadfruit, dumplings, coconut milk and spices, and is cooked slowly until all the milk is reduced. Seafood, such as crabs and conchs, and a variety of fresh fish are offered every day in most restaurants, and often come with bananas, plantains, rice and beans, or other fruits.
Drinks are very imaginative and colourful in Grenada. Sample a cocktail made with the famous Grenadine liqueur. During the holidays, the favoured non-alcoholic drink is made from sorrel, which are actually hibiscus flowers, steeped with a mixture of spices and served hot or cold. And Grenada is famous not only for spices, but also for rum. There are three distilleries on the island, Clarke’s Court and Westerhall Estate being the better known.
Should you require health care in Grenada, there are a few good clinics in St. George’s. For the most part, the standard of care is good, but facilities are limited. It is important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need at private clinics.
Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities, such as diving and snorkelling.
Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are safe in Grenada.
