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 Vaccinations for St. Bart’s
The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to St. Bart’s
The only small thing about St. Bart’s is its geographical size. Playground of the rich and famous, St. Bart’s exudes opulence, from the glittering port of Gustavia, to its more than 20 power white beaches. In the town of Gustavia stands the bell tower of the Eglise Catholique, which was built in 1885 with stones from St. Eustatius, and the tower of the Gustavia lighthouse. For the ideal shopping experience, visit the main street, lined with high-end boutiques and later, enjoy dining at some of the Caribbean’s finest restaurants.
One of the island’s most scenic beaches is Anse de Grande Saline, named after a large nearby salt pond, and be sure to save a special day for snorkelling at the underwater Marine Reserve. Your first stop on your way to St. Bart’s 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 St. Bart’s.
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.

Incredible service – so helpful
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!
Thorough and helpful consult
Thorough and helpful consult. Professional and pleasant experience, amazing and k knowledgeable staff!
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.
