Travel Health

Do you need vaccinations?

Arklow Medical Practice does not offer travel vaccinations. The Tropical Medical Bureau is the leading travel medicine clinic in Ireland with 22 clinics nationwide (including Gorey & Wicklow), and they are specialists in providing the best information and medical care available for the international traveller.


You need to arrange an appointment for a travel consultation at least 6-8 weeks before departure if possible. Vaccines need time to take effect and some may require a course over several weeks.


Check out their website for clinic locations and for the latest travel information, details on international and country specific health alerts and recommended travel vaccinations for that destination.
