Travel vaccinations

Postby wollie » Tue Jul 16, 2019 4:09 pm

I was asking this morn if i could get these in Spain for Thailand/Cambodia, the teacher Sid put me standing in the corner as my question put in the wrong place.
Anyway i need to get these and because of my itinerary it be better if i can do in Spain, does anyone if this is possible and where and how to about this?
I did discover since this morn when i posted that Booth Pharmacy offer this service, has anyone here availed of this service?

I did call Booths but the lady i chatted to not give me any info as we only get the said advise when we attend the appointment. I want to try to do this quickly and easily and hopefully do it all in one trip.

Many thanks...

A note Wollie, most jabs for that part of the world need to be 28 days before you travel to have maximum effect.

Gerry, thanks for that i will look through it now, i was considering going without any but i was told i may not be allowed in, any the return trip lying down could prove expensive.
Costa thanks i did know that as i got jabs years ago but cannot remember what for.

Woolie, where are you based? Helicopteros Sanitarios do vaccinations at their Marbella clinic. Make sure you get the certificate. Also available in Gibraltar at a private clinic.

The link Gerry provided has one in both Sevilla and Malaga and i will do this if i decide to go with Spain.
As i discovered after i made the initial post Booth's provide this service and there is one close to the Airport i return to in August, this is now my mostly option but i am concerned i may keep the appointment and they may not have required jabs in stock.
I have a few friends in Spain who did trips to eastern countries so i will also ask them. You said get the certificate, i just wonder is it a requirement to enter or is it advisory?

Many thanks.

FWIW we have travelled a lot in Asia, India and South America. Never have we been asked to show our vaccination cards. Wouldn't be a problem as we have all the vaccination recommended for any country we visit, even the mega expensive Japenese Encephalitis.

Some times the vaccinations you need are dependant on the country you are travelling from rather than the one you are entering. Eg if you are entering a country that is yellow fever free, but coming from a country that has it in that instance they will expect you to have been innoculated.

We tend to purchase the vaccinations at our local farmacia and get the nurse in the village clinic to administer them, except for simple ones like flu which we give to each other.
