looking forward to the half a dozen required vaccinations?
Of course. Who doesn't love having needles stabbed into themselves. Having to find another place for yellow fever vacc is annoying, but understandable. Where do you do your initial training?
 
I’m doing my training at worthy down barracks. And do you live South? I know one place that is currently open and charges 55, good guy aswell.

How's your hunt for places offering vaccinations going? I'm struggling to find somewhere offering yellow fever and the mantoux test in my area.

Ta for the link, I had a look and nothing in my area - I guess I'll have to make a 5 day round trip to Mainland GB. Nothing like turning a jab into a jaunt!

Thanks. There's a couple I haven't tried yet , hopefully that's my yellow fever sorted.

Any tips for the mantoux test/tb vaccination. When I asked my GP she said ask the army for some reason I'm guessing she was just confused when I said merchant navy.

I did notice, when I put in Swansea to see whether anything showed up, that one of them was a branch of Boots. It might be worth ringing their number tomorrow.

I'll have a look for the mantoux test.

Aha, had to go to a Scottish version of the yellow fever site. Local one located, there goes the excuse for a Mcdonalds!

Tried boots. That branch is not offering vaccinations at this time, I'll have a look at the other places tomorrow morning. Thanks again.

I just had my Yellow Fever as well as Hep A and Typhoid, if you search for Travel Clinics near you they can usually do it, that's where my GP recommended as they "don't do occupational health".

On that note though, does anyone know where to get Mantoux and BCG done? Can't seem to find anywhere either...

I've just seen the Boots post. I'll keep using the saviour that is Google to see what I can find.
