Vaccination Info

Vaccination information for travellers

It is advisable to come and see a doctor as soon as you have your travel plans in place. They will advise you on what vaccinations are required and when to have them. Ideally you should plan to have your vaccine 6 weeks before you travel if possible. We can arrange some vaccine here in the clinic. Others have to be done at government vaccination centres.

Government Travel Vaccination Centres

You need to go to Faro or Portimaõ. You have to have a prescription from the doctor to obtain the vaccines. They work on a first come, first serve basis, see below the days and times you can go. You need to take your ID, Cartão utente if you have, vaccination booklet if you have, plus the prescription for the vaccines from the doctor. Ideally you should go 6-8 weeks before departure.
