How does it work?
- Visit your local Boots Pharmacy, ideally around 6-8weeks prior to travel. This allows Boots enough times to arrange any vaccinations or medicines that you may need
- Answer a few short questions around when and where you are travelling. This will allow the Pharmacist to assess what vaccinations, if any, you will need
- If you require any vaccinations or malaria prevention medicated, a more detailed consultation will then follow.
- Finally, your pharmacist will be able to give you and vaccinations, medicines and advice to ensure a happy healthy trip.
