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 Guadeloupe

There have been outbreaks of Dengue Fever on both Basse Terre and Grande Terre. Bring DEET or an equivalent insecticide with you. Avoid drinking water from rivers and streams, as there is a danger of bilharziasis.

The sun in Guadeloupe is very strong, and it is vital that you use sun block with an SPF of at least 20, and apply often, especially after swimming. Seek shade under a palm tree where possible. Remember that the sun can burn you even when you are in the sea. Make a habit of carrying bottled water with you wherever you go, and stay hydrated. Alcohol will dehydrate you and make you more susceptible to the heat, so limit your alcohol intake.
