Monkbar Pharmacy’s York travel vaccination clinic is open 7 days a week and we are often able book patients in for same day appointments. We are also one of a handful of Yellow Fever centres in York so can provide this vaccination in addition to all the other usual travel vaccinations you would expect to have for travel to foreign countries such as, Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Tetanus, Rabies, Cholera, Tick Borne Encephalitis and Japanese Encephalitis. Monkbar Pharmacy can also provide anti-malarial drugs without the need for a prescription. See below for more information as well as vaccination prices and anti-malarial prices.

Malaria advice

Malaria is a deadly parasitic disease transmitted by the bite of mosquitoes – it is therefore essential to seek advice and take the most appropriate precautions to prevent catching this potentially fatal disease. When taken properly, anti-malarial drugs are 90-100% effective but must always be combined with other bite avoidance measures. The most effective anti-malarial drug varies from destination to destination so it is essential to obtain the most up to date information before you travel. Here at Monkbar Pharmacy we can provide the anti-malaria drug and advice you need for a safe trip, without the need for a doctor’s prescription. For more information about malaria visit here.

Yellow Fever Centre

We are a registered Yellow Fever Centre. The yellow fever vaccine is given as a single injection.
You should be vaccinated at least 10 days before you travel, as this will allow enough time for your body to develop protection against the yellow fever infection. Your proof of vaccination certificate (see below) will only become valid after this time. The vaccination provides protection for 95-100% of those who have it. This protection lasts at least 10 years and may even be life-long. Booster doses of the yellow fever vaccine used to be recommended every 10 years for everyone planning another visit to an area where the infection is found. However, the World Health Organisation (WHO) suggested that booster doses may not be necessary. Since July 2016, vaccination certificates have been valid for life (they previously expired after 10 years).

Vaccine requirements

Vaccines afford protection against diseases that can make you extremely ill or at worse even kill. Despite known risks, almost one in four UK holidaymakers don’t get any vaccinations, despite travelling to areas that have life-threatening infectious disease. Vaccinations protect you against many travel-related infections such as polio, typhoid, hepatitis A and B, rabies, cholera and Japanese encephalitis. Vaccine requirements vary depending upon destination and the nature of your travel, so if you have booked a trip and want to know how to best protect your health drop into our pharmacy and speak with one of our highly trained pharmacists for a personal travel vaccine schedule.
