Vaccinations

By allowing 6-8 weeks for your vaccination programme, you have time to fit in full courses of vaccines where required which provides you with the best possible protection against certain vaccine preventable diseases.  If you don’t have time to complete courses before you go, you risk travelling with little or even no protection against sometimes high risk diseases. All Nomad nurses are fully trained in travel health and use up to the minute information to ensure you are fully protected.
