If you travel to areas where infectious diseases occur which normally do not or hardly appear in western Europe you might be at medical risk. Often medical assistance is also less accessible than we are used to. That is why there is a vaccination advice for various countries outside Europe.
Patients who are registered at General Practice Nieuwland can, prior to traveling abroad, contact us for expert advice that fits the personal situation and for administering the necessary vaccinations.
The travelers vaccination consultation is provided by Elsbeth van Doornik (GP assistant and trained by Travel Alert to provide traveler advice) and is under the responsibility of Mrs. van Bentum (general practitioner and LCR registered Travelers Physician).
To request a traveler advice we ask you to fill in and provide us with our travelers vaccination form at least 5 weeks before departure. Within a few days we will contact you to make an appointment. During this consultation you will receive an appropriate travel advice and agreements can be made about possible vaccinations. If you already have a (yellow) vaccination booklet, it is important to take this with you.
BE AWARE: There are costs associated with the traveler advice. These costs are often (partially) reimbursed by your health insurance company.
You will receive an invoice from us that you have to pay us and which you can possibly submit to your health insurer.
