Guidance and advice on travel health
You should seek advice on any vaccinations you may need for travel abroad as soon as possible and in any case at least eight weeks before you're due to travel, as some vaccinations take some time to take effect.
The NHS Choices website contains a wealth of information on travel vaccinations and immunisations for those travelling abroad as well as information on when and where to get them.
Employees going abroad on University business may require immunisation against infectious diseases and / or malaria prophylaxis. For some types of immunisation, this may be carried out in the Occupational Health Unit. The cost of the vaccines and / or medication will be charged to the cost centres (Schools/Departments) where immunised individuals work.
For any non-work related travel immunisations, please contact your own GP.
Foreign and Commonwealth Office Advice:
If you are about to travel abroad in the course of your work or studies, or for leisure purposes, particularly if your destination is in some way "politically unstable", or offers some other indication that you might be exposing yourself to a higher degree of risk than you normally experience, by visiting the location in question, you might wish to consult the official advice from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's Travel Advice Unit in this regard.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office website also includes up to date country specific information and details of British embassies and consulates.
Fitfortravel is a public access website provided by the NHS (Scotland). It gives travel health information for people travelling abroad from the UK.
