If you plan to book a last minute holiday to somewhere exotic, be aware that you may well need certain vaccinations, and that some of these jabs may need to be administered up to six weeks before you travel.
However, until you know the exact destination you will be going to, it might be hard to know which specific vaccinations are actually going to be needed.
If you know you plan to go somewhere exotic at a certain time and are merely waiting for a good price or indeed are not exactly sure on which precise date you will be able to go, you may actually benefit from visiting a travel clinic before you book and simply asking for a standard travel pack of inoculations. Of course, this won’t always be possible, and when it comes to those holidays that you truly are taking on a whim, you may need to get jabs very quickly. Again, a travel clinic will be your best bet in such circumstances as many of these will offer walk in appointment to help ensure that you can get the right inoculations immediately as opposed to having to wait for your own GP to be free.
The majority of anti-viral jabs will last for a year or more and therefore even those who do not know exactly when they plan to go will benefit from visiting the right clinic in plenty of time. By doing so, you can be sure that, even for holidays booked the day before travel, you will be totally prepared and wont find your options limited by your lack of inoculations, or find yourself taking very unnecessary risks by heading away unprotected.
It may seem hard to be prepared for last minute holidays, but simply by planning ahead and knowing which drop in clinics are nearest to you, you can get all the benefits of a last minute break, without the risk.
