I was so pleased that I used the travel clinic at Elegant Aesthetics. I was able to chat through my requirements with the pharmacist and book in all of my jabs easily and have my malaria tablets dispensed at the same place. It was really straightforward. A great service! Thank you

It is recommended to get this vaccination, if you are travelling to a country with many rabies cases, you are planning to stay there for a month or longer and you are unlikely to have access to medical care.

Rabies can be found in many parts of the world. GOV.UK provides a detailed list of countries that have rabies in domestic animals or wildlife. The list can be found here.

Vaccination involves a course of 3 injections before you travel, usually given over a period of 28 days.
