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
Travel Vaccinations for Turks and Caicos
The table below provides a general guide as to the Travel Vaccinations that may be advised to you for travel to Turks and Caicos
Who hasn’t dreamt of blue skies, diaphanous turquoise seas and white beaches as far as the eye can see? In Turks and Caicos, it’s not a dream. Ideal weather, balmy breezes and the gentle lapping of the Caribbean sea against the shore are everyday miracles in the Turks and Caicos islands. As if that weren’t enough, Turks and Caicos has one of the world’s longest coral reefs, and is a premier diving destination. One of the top dives is the famous vertical reef, called the Grand Turk wall. The National Museum on Grand Turk has a magnificent display built from the timbers of a Spanish ship wreck, which sank around 1512, and if you are a golfer, the Waterloo Club at the former Governor’s Mansion is open to the public. If you’re taking a day off from the beach scene, take a walk around Cockburn Town and enjoy the historic section along the waterfront. Your first stop on your way to Turks and Caicos 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 Turks and Caicos.
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 Turks and Caicos
The climate in Turks and Caicos is a constant, slightly breezy one, with highs close to 33 C. Use a good sun block lotion with SPF 20 or higher, and when taking the sun, be sure to rest in the shade for at least 15 minutes per hour, and apply sun block liberally and often. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of bottled water and take it with you no matter what your activity might be.
The tap water in Turks and Caicos is not safe to drink. It’s best to drink only bottled water which is cheap and widely available. Remember to drink often and whether it be water or fruit juices, replenish fluids throughout the day. Avoid ice cubes, and use only bottled water for brushing your teeth.
There is a good choice of restaurants and bars on the islands, but the best selection is on Providenciales, where regional specialties, like conch salad and local lobster as well as International cuisines are served. It follows that seafood figures large on the menu, and you can find good restaurants serving West Indian cuisine, Creole, French and Italian dishes. Some of the better restaurants are found in hotels and resorts. Fresh fruits such as banana,papaya and others are grown on the larger islands and are pressed into shakes and fresh smoothies, but if you eat them as is, be sure they are first peeled. Try the local brew, called Turk’s Head beer, or sip a yummy rum punch before dinner.
Should you require health care in Turks and Caicos, you will find community clinics on all islands and there is a small hospital on Grand Turk. U.K. residents can obtain medical treatment at no charge with proof of residency. For the most part, the standard of care is good, but it is important that you arrange in advance to have enough money with you to pay for any health care you might need in case of emergency.
Protect yourself, and your family, with comprehensive travel health insurance which will cover your intended itinerary and any potentially risky activities, such as wall diving.
Aside from observing the normal precautions, visitors are very safe in Turks and Caicos islands.
