Travel Vaccinations

Baby Pos II is headed to Peru later this year. Can anyone recommend the best place to get travel vaccinations?

IIRC the International Medicine Clinic started life as a Travel Clinic and still claims a special interest in it. We had all our jabs done there and I remember Neo getting advice and a Travel Kit from them when he was doing a lot of trips to India.

I used to see Dr Clarice (as I know did a few of the ladies of the Porum) but Neo saw an Irish bloke.

edit: She'll probably need malaria tabs. They can be scary shit.

Your GP so you've got all your records in one place. If your GP doesn't know what needs doing then get onto either the US or UK government travel/health websites to help out.

International Medical Clinic at either Jelita or Camden will sort you out. I know they - and all of Singapore, I guess - are currently out of typhoid vaccine because we've been on the wait list for a few weeks now & I stopped in yesterday to check and they still don't have it.
