Availability of FSME and Varicella vaccines
Please contact our GPs for further information and a vaccination appointment.
Normally one dose guarantees a 95% life-long protection against a varicella infection. Tickborne encephalitis is not endemic in The Netherlands. Depending on your holiday destinations it might be advisable to have the FSME vaccine. For further advice please contact our travel clinic.
We stock a variety of Homeopathic and Orthomolecular products including Solgar. In addition, we also provide expert advice on the safe and effective usage of such products.
Travel vaccinations and products
We work closely with our on-site travel clinic and therefore have most travel vaccines in stock, including yellow fever. We also stock anti-malarial drugs and other travel items such as mosquito nets/repellents, first aid kits and hygiene items. It is advisable to allow plenty of time for vaccination requests, as vaccine immunity is not achieved immediately for some vaccines.
