16/09/17 – We currently do NOT have any hepatitis A and hepatitis B ADULT vaccines in stock.  

We have a limited supply of hepatitis B children vaccine (for 0-15 years of age – £35 per dose). Given the current global shortage of hepatitis B vaccine, two (x2) simultaneous doses of children hepatitis B vaccines can be given to adults (16 years +) as the children dose is exactly half of the adult dose.

What to know before you go. Bugs can spread diseases.

Travelers to tropical and other destinations should take steps to prevent bug bites.

  • Other ways to prevent bug bites:

    • Wear long sleeves and pants.

    • Use permethrin-treated gear and clothing.

    • Sleep in places that are air conditioned or screened against bugs.

    • Sleep under a bed net if sleeping area is exposed to the outdoors.
