Private Doctor Walk-In and Travel Vaccination Clinic in London

One of the founding principles of (med)24 was our intention to offer access to highly qualified doctors, state of the art facilities, leading technology diagnostics and expert primary care, not only to our members, but any walk in patient that arrives at our private London clinic. The ability to provide medical consultations and treatments as and when required to walk in customers is an important part of our offering.

One area of treatments available at our London clinic, where we have significant expertise, is the provision of vaccinations. A vitally important part of both family and public health, vaccines prevent the spread of contagious, dangerous, and deadly diseases, whether they are those we are routinely immunised against in the UK (measles, polio, mumps, chicken pox, whooping cough, diphtheria, and HPV) or those you may need for travel overseas, which require a different set of travel vaccinations.

For the former, our Membership Health Plans can be set up to ensure you and your family automatically receive all the recommended vaccinations you need, via organised doctor appointments at our private London clinic, at the right ages and life stages, or alternatively as a private walk in patient if and when required. The latter vaccinations (and other supporting medications), which depending on your travel destination, time of year, health and age might be needed to guard against infection from diseases such as malaria, cholera, yellow fever, typhoid and hepatitis, and in many cases do require some planning ahead. Both (med)24 members, and walk in patients should contact our private team of doctors and clinicians around four to six weeks prior to travelling so we can plan and arrange your vaccinations in good time (it’s important to note that some specific vaccine(s) require multiple doses to build up immunity).

Most vaccinations involve being injected by one of our private doctors with a weakened form of the specific disease to prime your body to produce defensive antibodies which remain in your bloodstream. Vaccine side effects are usually mild, and include redness or swelling at the injection site. Children can sometimes develop a low-grade fever. These symptoms usually go away in a day or two.

For more information about vaccination treatments, contact the (med)24 team to book an appointment with one of our private doctors, or simply walk into our London clinic.
