Travel Vaccinations and Advice

Going abroad? A Boots healthcare professional can explain your holiday health needs and administer vaccinations and medicines such as protection from malaria and typhoid.

Travel Health

If you are going abroad, you may need vaccinations or medicines to keep you and your family protected. To help, Boots is introducing a travel health service in selected stores.

When you travel to some countries, as well as the obligatory sun tan lotion and first aid kit, it may also be important to consider whether you and your family require vaccinations or additional medication.

To help with this aspect of your holiday planning, Boots has teamed up with MASTA, a leading travel health specialist, to provide you with a service you can trust.
