Our working method
We work on a consultation basis in which we personally advise you which vaccinations you should take for your trip to Uganda. 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 also be vaccinated just before the start of 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.
