There are some vaccines that are recommended for the United Kingdom. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend some vaccines before travelling to the UK. Vaccines are recommended for ailments such as:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis
  • Rabies
  • Mumps and Rubella (MMR)
  • Measles
  • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis)
  • Shingles
  • Chickenpox
  • Polio
  • Influenza
  • Pneumonia

The following table shows the recommended travel vaccinations for the UK:

Hepatitis B accelerated schedule available Blood and body fluids
Meningitis  Direct contact/airborne anyone who is unvaccinated with a higher risk, speciality the students
Rabies  Especially for long-term travellers and those who come in contact with animal the most Saliva of an infected animal

Pneumonia  Two vaccinations are given. All 65+ or with an impaired immune system should receive both vaccinations Airborne

How far in Advance you should Get Vaccinated before Travelling?

It is essential to get vaccinated at least 8 weeks prior to the exact travel dates. This will allow the vaccines to work properly on your body and develop immunity to prevent diseases. Some vaccines need time to allow your body to develop immunity. This way you can ensure enough time to receive the complete dose of vaccination and stay fit throughout.If you’re with a specific medical condition that prevents you from receiving the vaccination, the same will be made as contraindicated by a physical practitioner. Contraindication is a condition, which restrains you from getting a vaccine and allows to travel with other conditions.

Where can I go to Get Travel Vaccines?

You can get yourself vaccinated from:

  • Private travel vaccination clinic
  • Pharmacy offering travel healthcare services

Things to Consider

There are certain things to consider while planning to get travel vaccination including:

  • You may be more vulnerable to diseases than others; some vaccines can't be given to people with certain medical conditions
  • Chances are higher for you to come in contact with diseases in a refugee camp or after an outbreak of a natural disaster
  • Physician, nurse or other healthcare workers are more prone to get infected and may require additional vaccinations
  • Diseases spread through animals such as rabies are common

Travellers travelling to countries like northern and central Europe, Australia or North America don’t require any vaccinations. But it's important to be up-to-date with the routine vaccinations available on the NHS while travelling to the UK.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Related Tips

Speak to your doctor before having any vaccinations if:

  • you're pregnant
  • you think you might be pregnant
  • you're breastfeeding

Prevention is the Key

 When you can’t avoid a sudden health condition, prevention is the only solution. So,

  • Get vaccinated before travelling
  • Eat and drink safely abroad
  • Keep yourself away from animals
  • Avoid sharing body fluids
  • Avoid using non-sterile medical equipment
  • Reduce the exposure to germs

Stay healthy, travel safe!
