Our working method

We work on a consultation basis in which we personally advise you which vaccinations you should take for your trip to Bolivia. Any advice will involve your travel destination, the duration and circumstances of the trip and your personal health condition. Vaccinations and anti-malaria drugs do not always give full protection and sometimes have side effects. Therefore, the pros and cons of the various measures must be weighed up for each trip and for each person.

Even if you have booked a last-minute trip, it is wise to consult the Vaccination Point. This is because you can still be vaccinated just before your trip starts. If you often book a last-minute, it is advisable to get the basic vaccinations (DTP, hepatitis A and possibly typhoid fever) as a precautionary measure.
