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.

Martinique has a fairly temperate climate, with cooling breezes year round, but the sun can burn you in a short space of time. You will need a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher, which you should apply liberally and often. At the beach and on tour, remember to wear head covering.

The tap water in Martinique is chlorinated and considered safe to drink, however, 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 Martinique, and replenish fluids throughout the day.

Martinican cuisine has earned its place among the top cuisines of the world. Here, fine French cuisine combines with Creole spice and colour, with delectable results. Seafood of all sorts is the focus of most restaurant menus, and crayfish, jumbo shrimp, conch, and fish are grilled, sautéed or steamed in spicy stews and gumbos. Dishes are complemented with breadfruit, yucca, or sweet potatoes. Food is a serious business in Martinique and even the simplest meal at a roadside diner can be a culinary treasure. A simple dessert becomes an event. Bananas are flambéed, with rum of course. Martinique’s method of rum production has earned it the world’s only AOC designation for rum. Enjoy it neat or in a traditional ti’ punch cocktail.

Should you require health care in Martinique, there are several good hospitals, and clinics. For the most part, and the standard of care is high. 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 Martinique, but it is not advisable to walk the beach alone at night. When hiking through forests or bushy areas, take special care to watch for snakes. The “fer de lance” pit vipers have a highly toxic venom. Manchineel trees found on some south coast beaches are marked with a band of red paint and must be avoided, as rainwater dripping from them causes rashes and blistering.
