Safety first for foreign travellers from Almeria


SEVEN per cent more travellers attended Almeria City’s Centro de Vacunacion Internacional last year than in 2013.
The centre has already vaccinated 706 potential travellers and so far dealt with 2,384 enquiries in the first three months of this year.
Many were Almeria province residents from Senegal, Ecuatorial Guinea and Mali planning to return for family visits. Others were local residents intending to travel for business or pleasure.
The centre receives constant updates of outbreaks and epidemics of dangerous diseases worldwide, enabling staff to inform travellers of the protection they need and the possible risks attached to their prospective journeys.
Vaccinating against yellow fever, meningitis, polio, Central European encephalitis and rabies during the first quarter of this year has already increased by 28 per cent compared with 2014.
The centre recommends making appointments between four and six weeks before the intended journey. These can be made by ringing 950 759000 and 950 759418 or by emailing [email protected]
