Don’t forget your travel vaccines?

If you are planning any trips abroad this summer, make sure you are protected against serious infectious diseases such as Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Malaria. Many common destinations for Irish travelers can pose significant health risks particularly for travelers over 65 and children. Safe and effective vaccines are available at Kilmacud Medical Centre for many of these infections. We can also prescribe pills to protect you against Malaria depending on your destination, health status and budget. When phoning for a travel vaccine appointment, mention this at the time of booking as these sessions take a little longer than the usual visits.

Have you had a Cervical Smear
