Travel Medicine is an area of medicine that deals with pre-travel preventative care. Here at Roxboro Medical Centre, our team of experienced doctors in Limerick and nurses provide a complete range of travel vaccinations and medical care for those planning a trip abroad. Anyone travelling overseas should think about what vaccinations they may need, and what precautions/provisions they need to take.
When you book your travel medicine consultation with one of our doctors, they will go through your travel itinerary in detail. You will be provided with general travel advice such as prevention of deep vein thrombosis; food and water safety along with other possible risks associated with your trip to ensure it is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
We will also discuss what vaccinations and medication you may need, and when you need to get them. Some vaccinations take time to take effect and others require a course of vaccinations over a period of time, so it is important to book your consultation early.
