Pharmacy Travel Clinic
We are pleased to announce our new Travel Clinics available in all our pharmacies.
As a population we are travelling more regularly and further afield, yet many are unaware of the health risks associated with such travel, particularly to Asia, Africa and South America.
Dears Pharmacy Travel Clinic serves to advise and support you with healthcare needs through vaccinations and travel aids.
We would not advise anyone to travel abroad without checking if they need a vaccination so:
- whether you’re filling a gap year or back-packing with friends
- off to an international conference
- or just a seasoned traveller please don’t travel without seeking advice first, ideally two months before you travel.
Our trained pharmacists can provide pre-travel consultations, which allows them to advise on your immunisation needs and the potential risks in the country to which you are travelling to.
Our trained pharmacists will
- review your itinerary
- complete a full risk assessment
- plan immunisations, anti-malarials if required and health advice for your trip.
We work closely with GP surgeries, so can also assess the impact of any pre-existing chronic medical conditions.
Dears Pharmacy can also support in administering the meningococcal (ACWY) vaccination, which supports travellers going to Hajj or Umrah.
We also help order supplies for your trip, such as anti-malarial tablets or mosquito nets, as well as a range of travel medicines and vaccines at more competitive rates than High Street outlets.
If you have used our travel clinic in the past we also provide special offers as well as offering pre-arranged early morning and evening appointments.
If it is possible, we would suggest that you seek travel health advice between four to eight weeks prior to your trip.
