Travel Clinic

Who would want to fall ill during that 20 day Europe tour? We know the importance of a healthy body that allows you to enjoy your stay abroad with the least possible medical problems. Health and medical safety while travelling internationally is given high regards in today’s time. Our travel clinic provides you with up to date treatment and advice alongside immunization and health checkups to make sure you only worry about the weather and food on your international journeys.

Vaccination – The clinic supervises adult and child immunization, wherein vaccinations are provided for adults based on their age group, medical co morbidities and place of travel. In addition, now a days people travel world over for business, recreation and adventure. There again lies a risk of getting exposed to certain infections which may not be prevalent in India and hence need added protection through certain vaccines.
