Travel Vaccination

Travel Vaccination is available at Aster Medical Centre. The clinic offers a broad range of vaccinations and provides pre- and post-travel counseling. If you are planning a trip overseas, it is ideal that you set up an appointment 4 to 6 weeks before your planned departure date. Most vaccines take time to become effective and some vaccines must be given in a series and will offer you protection only after 2 to 3 doses.

However, even if you have not made your appointment, it might not be too late to get some vaccinations and other information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while traveling.
