Special Note to Travelers

You can avail the full benefits of a trip abroad only when you are in the pink of health. Make an entry in your diary (with an asterisk mark!) to check out your immunization/vaccination schedules before you draw up your travel itinerary. It is in your best interests to take all recommended vaccines and any other specific ones the country of visit recommends, at least 4 weeks before departure. It is also important you consult a travel health expert before your journey.

Remember that each region of travel has different vaccination needs. Some of these examples include –

  1. Japanese encephalitis vaccination is recommended for travelers who plan prolonged trips to rural areas in South-East Asia or the Indian subcontinent during the transmission season.

  2. Typhoid fever immunization is recommended for travelers who are rik of consuming contaminated food and drink e.g in India

  3. Rabies vaccination is advised to travelers who plan to stay in remote regions or engage in work involving exposure to animals

Certain health problems like AIDS and post - transplant surgery patients planning travel need to special advice regarding vaccination if traveling to a risk prone area.

With medical protection literally knocking on your door, you would be more than unwise to ignore the vast advantage vaccinations can provide you. Take your vaccines, boost your immune system and remain healthy!

We offer Yellow Fever Vaccination to travellers from Chandigarh, Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh to South America/ Africa where this vaccine is mandated.



We are vaccinating with the latest French Yellow Fever vaccine called STAMARIL (Aventis Pharma) and are providing along with our prescription a WHO International Certificate of Vaccination. You need to bring your passport for the same.
