Travel Vaccines

A comprehensive travel medicine service is available to our patients with the most up to date information and practices in preventative medicine for the traveler. Dr. Margaret O’Regan has a special interest in travel medicine. For more information on what travel vaccines you may need, visit https://www.masta-travel-health.com/. Requirements for any country can change according to various outbreaks, and we are members of the Irish Society of Travel Medicine.

Flu Vaccine and Pneumonia Vaccine

Kinsale Medical administers the seasonal flu vaccine annually, usually beginning in October. Appointments for the flu vaccine are not available during surgery hours due to high demand; instead we run a clinic in the evening after normal surgery hours.

The Pneumovac vaccine which protects against pneumonia need only be administered once every 10 years, if you are over 65 years of age, and once every 5 years, if you are under 65 years of age. You should discuss whether you need this vaccine with your doctor.
