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.
If you come without an appointment, please allow for a longer waiting period.
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). You can pay the amount in cash or via EC card.
