Travel Vaccinations - Shortage of Hep A and B vaccine.
There is currently a global shortage of Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccine . Supplies have been limited to exceptional cases only and only specialist travel clinics are being given these vaccines and then only for travel to endemic Hep B areas. Details of these are available at www.fitfortravel.nhs.uk
. If you are travelling to an endemic area which requires Hep B you are advised to arrange your vaccinations through a private specialist travel clinic.
Travel vaccinations - unable to provide these if less than 6 weeks before departure.
We always advise to contact us at least 8 weeks before travel as you may need a series of vaccinations at a set frequency. If you have less than 6 weeks before the date of departure we do not have the resources to provide the appropriate vaccinations and you are advised to contact a private specialist travel clinic.
