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 contact the following telephone number Monday to Friday from 08:00-12:00 a.m.: +49 40 285 380 219. 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 advice. 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.
Please be aware of the possibility of a longer waiting time.
Further Information
Travel advice via telephone is not offered. Please use the free information provided under Country Information.
Our travel and vaccination advice and vaccinations are individual health services (IGeL), which are charged according to the scale of fees for doctors (GÖÄ). We recommend that you ask your health insurance company in advance whether the costs for the services provided and vaccinations will be reimbursed. We kindly ask you to pay the invoice amount immediately on site by EC card/credit card or in cash.
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.

As of February 20, 2024:

We have the rabies vaccine in stock.

We have the vaccine against Japanese Encephalitis in stock.

We will inform you here if the vaccine against rabies or Japanese Encephalitis is not available for us.

Please note the following instructions.

If you would like to receive the vaccination during our office hours, please schedule an appointment online in our travel advice and vaccination consultation. Here, you will be advised in a personal conversation. Medically recommended vaccinations can then be administered directly.

To schedule an appointment, please visit the website www://bnitm/reisen-impfen/ and select the Timeacle button.

We receive numerous inquiries daily regarding the availability of the vaccine. Scheduling an appointment for a medical consultation is only possible online.

We do not schedule appointments by phone or email, unfortunately, even if you are traveling on short notice. Vaccinations without a personal medical consultation in our outpatient clinic, even if you have already received travel advice from your general practitioner, are not allowed. We do not sell vaccine doses for administration by your doctor.

Please bring your vaccination record with you.

General note: Travel medical advice is a so-called IGeL (Individuelle Gesundheitsleistung = Individual Health Service). We ask you to clarify with your health insurance in advance whether they will cover the costs of advice and vaccinations. Unfortunately, we cannot provide information on whether or to what extent your health insurance will cover the costs. Our services are billed according to the fee schedule for physicians and can be paid on-site by debit/credit card or in cash.

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 make an appoinment.

For an appointment as well as further information, please contact the following telephone number Monday to Friday from 08:00-12:00 a.m.: +49 40 285 380 219. Depending on the availability of appointments, we offer you a brief consultation so that you can receive an immediate yellow fever vaccination. 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.

In the case of a short consultation arranged at short notice, there may be a longer waiting time.
