If you are travelling at short notice to a country for which you urgently need a required yellow fever vaccination and cannot book an appointment in time, please come personally to the outpatient clinic at the Bernhard Nocht Institute. After a brief consultation, you will have the opportunity to receive an immediate yellow fever vaccination. In this case we do not offer a complete travel consultation. For a comprehensive travel consultation, we recommend that you make this up at a regular appointment in our outpatient clinic, with your family doctor or with a registered tropical medicine practitioner.

If you come without an appointment, please allow for a longer waiting period.

Further Information

A travel medical consultation by telephone is not offered. Please use the free information provided under Country Information.

Our medical travel and vaccination advice and vaccinations are individual health services (IGeL), which are charged according to the scale of fees for doctors (GÖÄ). You can pay the amount in cash or via EC card.

The Institute's travel and vaccination consultations are offered by the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) at the Institute's location at Bernhard-Nocht-Str. 74 in Hamburg-St. Pauli. Head of the institute is the tropical medicine specialist Prof. Dr. Michael Ramharter.

Additional information on yellow fever vaccination

If you travel at short notice to a country for which you urgently require a yellow fever vaccination and can't book a short-term appointment, please come to the outpatient clinic personally. Here you have the opportunity to get an immediate yellow fever vaccine after a short consultation. Please note that in these cases we can't offer a complete travel advice. For a detailed consultation, we recommend a regular appointment in our outpatient clinic, at your family doctor or at a specialist for tropical diseases.

The waiting period for a short-term yellow fever vaccine without appointment can be considerable.
