Our working method

We work on the basis of consultations in which we personally advise you which vaccinations you should take for your trip to Brazil. Each recommendation involves your travel destination, the duration and circumstances of the trip and your personal health condition. Vaccinations and anti-malaria drugs do not always provide full protection and sometimes have side effects. Therefore, the pros and cons of the various measures should 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. You can still be vaccinated just before your trip. If you often book a last-minute, it is advisable to take the basic vaccinations (DTP, hepatitis A and possibly typhoid fever) as a precaution.
