"Vaccine worth it as it lasts for 8 years"
4.5 50Reviewed 04 Apr 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Shingles Vaccine
Went there for a Shingles jab as I do not qualify under the NHS (not yet 70). One of my friends has had shingles and it was very painful for about 5 weeks and he has still not fully recovered. I decided to seek private treatment and at £149.00 I thought it was worth it as it lasts 8 years..

Closest clinic to where I live. Looks like a large Chemist shop. I was invited into a small treatment room and met the doctor and his assistant. Treatment was excellent: after taking a history he explained all about shingles and about the injection. He told me about possible side affects of the jab (I didn't have any). After the jab they asked me to wait for 10 mnutes then gthey checked I was ok to leave.

"So glad they are now fully protected against Chicken Pox"
5 50Reviewed 21 Nov 2015 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Chickenpox Vaccine
My two sons, ages 2 and 5, had the second Chicken Pox Vaccination booster at the Armada Medical Clinic. The vaccination at this clinic was 60 pounds which is much less than many other clinics in the area.

The doctor was friendly and helpful. He explained everything I needed to know regarding the vaccination, including possible side effects. It's been over a week since my visit, and my boys didn't have any issues other than a little fussiness that evening. I am so glad they are now fully protected against Chicken Pox. After the second dose, it's 98% effective. Even if they do, by the off chance catch the virus, we'd probably never notice since the symptoms would be so mild. It's well worth the 120 pounds in my opinion.

"I could see my little boy was feeling relaxed"
5 50Reviewed 11 Sep 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Meningococcal Vaccine
Men b jab for my 3 year old. Quick, staff were great with my little one. I could see my little boy was feeling relaxed and was chatting away to them about the jab and the sticker he had been given for being brave.

Everything was explained beforehand and staff checked I knew what I had asked for and why, which I felt was good as they obviously care about giving the correct treatment. They explained about further treatment needed and the importance of still being cautious for signs of meningitus

"Made my kids feel at ease"
5 50Reviewed 10 Jul 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Chickenpox Vaccine
Chickenpox vaccine for my 1 year old and 3 year old. We had been so lucky not to have had contracted it thus far, I found a local clinic which offered the service and the cost was very reasonable, compared to two weeks off work and the pain the kids go through.

Completely recommend using armada travel clinic. Staff very professional, took me in first while partner waited with kids and explained the procedure, outcome and possible side effects. He made both children feel at ease and really praised them after. So relaxed that my 3 yo didn't even cry and my baby had a cuddle with him after! Thank you!

"My little girl was put at ease"
4.5 50Reviewed 16 Jun 2015 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Chickenpox Vaccine
My little girl had the chicken pox vaccination, which was really good value at this particular clinic. She's only had one dose so far but we're booked in for the second. I've already recommended it to a friend.

Its in a pharmacy but once you get into the treatment room it was quiet and calm. The advice was clear and concise and my little girl was put at ease. It was really professional, quick and friendly. I would recommend the clinic.

General Practice

 
Health Check
from £55
Mantoux Test (2 sessions)

A Mantoux Test is necessary before BCG vaccination. The Mantoux Test shows whether your body has ever been exposed to TB germs before. You require two appointments for the Mantoux Test – first to administer the test then after 48 - 72 hours to measure the results. The Mantoux Test will determine whether a BCG vaccine is required.

BCG Vaccine

£60 - £120
Chickenpox Vaccine (2 sessions)
from £10
Flu Vaccine

Flu (Influenza) is an infectious disease which spreads very rapidly through coughs and sneezes of people who are already carrying the virus.


The Flu immunisation (Flu Vaccine) gives you good protection from the Flu virus, and lasts for 1 year. Each year, the vaccine is usually available from autumn, and is made from the strain of flu that is expected in the coming winter.

from £35
Hepatitis Vaccine

Hepatitis A

Hepatitis A is an infection of the liver caused by the Hepatitis A virus. It is caught through contaminated food and water or through person-to-person contact if personal hygiene is poor. It causes a range of issues including jaundice, nausea, fatigue and fever and can last from a few weeks to a few months. There is no cure for Hepatitis A so treatment is usually supportive.

A single injection of the vaccine should be given two weeks before you leave, although it can be given up to the day of your departure if necessary. This will protect you against Hepatitis A for about a year. A booster dose, given 6–12 months after the first dose, will protect you for at least 20 years. Each dose of Hepatitis A vaccine costs £40.


Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a serious disease which affects the functioning of the liver. It can go on to become a life-long chronic condition with serious effects, including liver failure, scarring of the liver and liver cancer. There are currently more than 2 billion people in the world that have been infected by Hepatitis B, which is one in every three people in the planet. It is spread through contact with infected blood or body fluids, such as through sexual intercourse or sharing needles.

Several different vaccines are available for Hepatitis B. Most require a course of three doses which are given rapidly over a one month course or given over a standard six months course. Each dose of Hepatitis B vaccine cost £35.

Once you have completed the course, you should be protected against Hepatitis B for life. Healthcare workers are advised to have a booster dose after five years.

from £80
Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine (2 sessions)

Japanese Encephalitis is a rare but serious viral infection which is spread by infected mosquitoes and occurs in most of the Far East and South East Asia countries. It is usually mild, but in some cases it can cause inflammation (swelling) of the brain (encephalitis), leading to permanent brain damage or death.

The vaccination is given as an injection and requires two doses for full protection, with the second dose given 28 days after the first. The second dose should ideally be completed at least a week before travelling.

The Japanese Encephalitis vaccine is not available on the NHS, and each dose will normally cost £80 per person. It's a good idea to include this when budgeting for your trip.

£35 - £140
Meningococcal Vaccine
from £40
Oral Cholera Vaccine

Cholera is a potentially life-threatening, often water borne disease caused by bacterial infection. The infection causes watery diarrhoea leading to rapid dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. It is this dehydration which is potentially fatal. It is highly-infectious, causing a number of epidemics and pandemics.

 

For adults and children over six years of age, two doses of the vaccine (Dukoal) are needed to protect against Cholera for two years. After this, a booster will be required. The vaccine is taken orally (by mouth), as a small amount of liquid to be swallowed. Children aged two to six years old will need to have three doses of the vaccine. This will protect them for six months, after which time they will need to have a booster. Each dose of the vaccine costs £20.

from £30
Pneumonia Vaccine
from £55
Rabies Vaccine (3 sessions)

Rabies is a fatal viral disease of the nervous system which can affect all mammals including humans. The disease is usually spread by saliva from the bite, scratch or lick onto broken skin of an infected animal that is carrying the virus. Clinical signs include paralysis and aggression leading to a death.

All mammals are susceptible to the virus including skunks, jackals, mongooses, foxes and raccoons, dogs, cats, monkeys and bats. Travellers are advised to avoid contact with animals in infected areas.

It is common throughout the world and you should consider it if you are travelling to countries such as Brazil, India or Thailand where street dogs and bats are common. Rabies is pretty much untreatable and once the clinical signs of rabies appear, the disease is nearly always fatal.

Vaccination is recommended for all travellers who will be living or travelling in endemic areas and who maybe exposed to Rabies because of their travel activities i.e. trekking, working or living in rural areas.

A course of three doses of the Rabies vaccine (Rabipur) is required for protection. The second dose is given seven days after the first. The third dose is given 21 or 28 days after the first. Each dose of the Rabies Vaccine costs £55.

from £149
Shingles Vaccine

What is Shingles?

Shingles is an infection of a nerve and the area of skin supplied by the nerve. It is caused by a virus called the Varicella-zoster virus (this is the same virus that causes chickenpox). Shingles is sometimes called Herpes zoster. The symptoms of Shingles starts with tingling or burning in an area of the skin and is followed by the eruption of a painful rash usually on one side of the body or face that takes 2-4 weeks to resolve. 


Shingles can occur at any age, but it is most common in people over the age of 50 years. About 1 in 4 people develop Shingles during their lifetime. It is also possible to get Shingles more than once, although fortunately fewer than 10% of people who have a first attack will have another one.

Can Shingles be prevented?

The good news is that there is now a Shingles vaccine available to people aged 50 and over. It has been shown to be effective in reducing the risk of older people developing Shingles, and even if you do develop Shingles then the disease is likely to affect you less severely. A national immunisation programme is available for those aged 70 - 79, but is being introduced in phases. 



Can I be vaccinated privately?

At Armada Travel Clinic we can offer it for those aged 50 or over. The vaccine is a single dose injection at a cost of £149. Please contact Armada Travel Clinic for further information or to book an appointment.

from £35
Typhoid Vaccine

Typhoid is an infection that causes diarrhoea and a high temperature, resulting in severe illness for two to three weeks. If left untreated it can develop into a serious condition which may require hospitalisation and can be fatal in severe cases. It is spread through contact with human stools, usually as a result of poor sanitation and personal hygiene.

Typhoid is found throughout the world, but is more likely to occur in areas where there is poor sanitation and hygiene. In particular, risk areas include:

  • Africa
  • Central America
  • The Indian subcontinent
  • The Middle East
  • South America
  • South and South-East Asia

There are a number of options available for vaccination against this disease which includes single injections, combined vaccinations with Hepatitis A and oral capsules. Our travel specialist can recommend the most suitable option for you based on your specific health requirements, itinerary, past vaccination history and time to travel.


The Typhoid vaccine protects against Typhoid for about three years. The Typhoid vaccine is not suitable for infants younger than two. The cost of the Typhoid Vaccine is £35.

from £59
Yellow Fever Vaccine

Yellow Fever is a serious and sometimes fatal viral infection transmitted by infected Aedes mosquitoes that bite during daylight hours. The infection is spread from infected monkeys and humans and is considered to be one of the most lethal viral diseases. Yellow Fever mosquitoes are often found in tropical parts of Africa and South America.


Facts:
  • There is no cure for Yellow Fever. Treatment is aimed at reducing symptoms for the comfort of the patient.
  • Yellow Fever occurs in tropical parts of South America and Sub-Saharan Africa, most commonly West Africa.
  • Common in jungle and urban areas especially during rainy season.

Prevention

There is no specific treatment for Yellow Fever. However, Yellow Fever vaccine is effective and available. People travelling to areas where Yellow Fever may be present should be immunised.

In addition, certain countries require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination or an exemption certificate before persons are permitted entry. Failure to provide a valid certificate can lead to a traveller being quarantined, immunised or denied entry.

Armada Travel Clinic is a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and has been authorised by NaTHNaC (as the regulatory body for England, Wales and Northern Ireland), to administer yellow fever vaccine in accordance with International Health Regulations (2005). The cost of the Yellow Fever Vaccination and International Certificate is £70.
