Travel health advice & vaccinations
Travel Health Advice
Winchester Travel Health specialises in helping travellers make the right choices to minimise the health risks they face when travelling abroad. All our healthcare professionals are experts in travel health.
We provide up to date advice on all aspects of travel to reduce the risks of our clients becoming unwell while abroad.
Our senior nurse, Joanna Lowry, is a national trainer in travel health and we are supported by Dr Matthew Dryden, an international expert on infections and tropical diseases.
Comprehensive Vaccination Service
Winchester Travel Health is a registered yellow fever centre and we stock most vaccines (such as rabies, cholera, Japanese encephalitis) and can usually obtain other non-stock vaccines within 48 hours. We also stock malaria tablets. In addition, we offer other vaccinations including meningitis B, chickenpox vaccine, whooping cough, flu, Hepatitis B for occupational health risks and a vaccine preventing cervical cancer (HPV) and some wart viruses.
For corporate customers, such as companies, colleges, schools and church groups, we can arrange off-site visits to vaccinate clients and we can offer education workshops including preventative advice.
If you would like some general, country specific travel health advice before booking an appointment, Fit for Travel is an excellent online resource for people travelling abroad from the UK.

Feedback from patients
"Thanks to the nurse for administering the injection and, importantly, the time taken in making me feel very comfortable and relaxed as I am not so good with needles! You provide an excellent service and I will recommend your clinic."October 2015
We are happy to announce that we can now offer Atovaquone & Proguanil anti-malaria medication for £1.00 per tablet, reduced from £2.25 per tablet. This is a limited time offer while stocks last, so don't delay in making sure you are adequately protected against malaria for your holidays in 2016.
To obtain this medication, you will need a short consultation with a specialist travel health nurse. Please book your appointment soon, while stocks last.
