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 Saint Martin

St. Maarten has a rather temperate climate with constant breezes from the trade winds, but it is important to take care when basking in the sun. You will need a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher. Apply liberally and often, whether at the beach or on tour.

The tap water in St. Maarten is purified and considered safe to drink. However, spring water is cheap and readily available. Bring lots of water with you wherever you go in St. Maarten, and replenish fluids throughout the day.

Often called The Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean, St. Maarten is noted for the choice and quality of its restaurants. French, Caribbean, Creole, and West Indian are the most popular but others are available in any number of St. Maarten’s more than 500 restaurants. Lobster and other seafood specialties top the list, and local chefs continually find new exciting ways to prepare them. Try stuffed crab, Chiquetaille made with avocado and shredded spicy codfish, or Blaff, seafood simmered in seasoned soup. Fresh juices are made from guava, mango, and tamarind, and the National drink is guava berry liqueur. Sip a ‘ti punch aperitif, made from fruit infused 100 proof rum while you take in one of St. Maarten’s world famous sunsets on Simpson Bay.

Should you require health care in St. Maarten, there are two medical centres, one on the French side, the other on the Dutch, both staffed with qualified trained personnel. There are also pharmacies across the island.. It is important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need at these medical centres.

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 on both sides of St. Maarten.
