Bedford Medical Practice offers a travel vaccination service which is provided by Dr Niall Maguire and Dr Seamus Mc Menamin both of whom are registered members of the Irish Travel Medicine Association. A full consultation is necessary with the doctor, ideally at least 8 weeks in advance of your travel date.
Please bring as much information as you can about your itinerary as your destinations will often dictate what protection you may need against infectious diseases. You can download useful information about up-to-date health issues for travellers at http://www.cdc.gov
All required vaccines can be obtained from your pharmacist. Yellow Fever vaccine is sold directly at the Practice to patients who require it at a cost of €30.00 as this cannot be supplied by your pharmacy.
Bedford Medical Centre is a registered Yellow Fever vaccination centre. Travel medicine consultations are not presently covered by the medical card contract.
