This offer is aimed at sick returning travelers and persons with suspected parasitic infections. Common health problems after a tropical stay include feverish illness, diarrhea and skin changes.
In the case of complaints after your return, a quick examination should be made. The diagnosis will be matched to the symptoms in addition to the screening.
We also carry out screening tests on travelers and migrants who have no complaints but were exposed to a health risk in the tropics. Examples include screening for schistosomiasis after freshwater contact in rivers or lakes in the tropics or in Corsica, as well as screening for Chagas disease in people from Latin America who have lived there for a long time.
The Bernhard Nocht ambulance of the UKE offers a vaccination consultation for immunosuppressed persons and people who will in future take immunosuppressant drugs.
These include e.g. persons with diseases of the autoimmune type (e.g. rheumatic diseases, chronic intestinal diseases (Mb Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), neurological autoimmune diseases (e.g. multiple sclerosis), dermatological autoimmune diseases (e.g. psoriasis), patients before or after organ transplantation or stem cell transplantation, patients or after splenectomy.

If you are travelling on a short notice to a country for which you require a yellow fever vaccination and can't book a short-term appointment, please come to the Bernhard Nocht Institute personally at the beginning of our opening hours. 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.
