Please note: Expeditions
The Expeditions Council requires all official Oxford University expeditions to complete certain medical requirements prior to departure. This includes the appointment of one expedition member as Medical Officer who then attends the University travel clinic for advice on immunisations and antimalarials.
Please note, the University travel clinic is only able to give advice to the Medical Officer, and is unable to administer vaccines or antimalarials for expeditions, or see other team members.
The Medical Officer then shares the travel clinic recommendation with individual members of the expedition who then attend either their own GP or another travel clinic provider for the necessary consultation, vaccinations and prescriptions for antimalarials.
Please note: Travel advice charge
A charge of £25 will be applied to cover the travel advice for the destination(s) received in the consultation from our specialist travel nurse.
This charge is waived if immunisations or medications are issued to the traveller in the consultation.
