Please note: Demand for travel clinic appointments is great and we have a limited number of appointments in fixed nursing sessions. Please try and book well in advance as we cannot guarantee an appointment or completion of any vaccine courses that we suggest otherwise. There are many alternative providers of travel health advice and immunisations in London.
Locally these private clinics include:
59 Mill Lane, West Hampstead, London NW6 1NB
At Aqua Pharmacy, the specially-trained travel health pharmacists can provide advice and information on immunisation. You can have all your vaccination requirements at our pharmacy in our private consultation room.
The pharmacists will work out the vaccine requirements for your holiday using the latest information provided by the government and NHS England for the countries you visit. Call our vaccine advice line on 020 7435 4273 or visit the pharmacy in person to speak to their trained staff.
