Travel and vaccination advice

 

A vaccination contains a pathogen (a bacterium, virus or microorganism that can cause disease) in a weakened or killed state, stimulating the body’s adaptive immunity response. When you receive a vaccine, your immune system will start to create antibodies and memory cells to fight the ‘infection’, therefore immunising against the virus in its unweakened form.

 

 

Every country has different requirements and recommended vaccinations. You can use our travel vaccination checker to discover which vaccinations are needed for your upcoming trip, and book an appointment without seeing your GP.

 

 

Although the average immune response will take around 7-21 days after being vaccinated, it is important to get vaccinated at least 4-6 weeks before you travel. This is so that there is time for the vaccines to work, as well as certain vaccinations which require multiple doses that span over months.

 

 

Prices will depend on the travel vaccine or combination of vaccines you need for your holiday; however prices start from £35*. For more information on the vaccines and prices that MASTA offer you can review their price list.
