I'm sure that many of you are planning holidays far away, where it's hot and winter is nowhere to be seen. Exotic places often require vaccinations, and in Zurich you generally have three options to get them. By the way: You can send the receipts to your health insurances, as some of the costs should be covered by your additional health insurance package. Have a nice trip!

You need to make an appointment beforehand and it’s best to inform the practice about your travel plans so they can make sure that they have the right vaccinations at hand. Tropen- und Reisemedizin at Bellevue If you need a consultation or special vaccinations, then the tropical and travel medical institute at Bellevue is the place to go. Book your appointment by phone. Fees have to be paid right at the practice. Your advantage: You won’t have to wait as you have a fixed date and they’re open on Saturday. Praxis Dr. B. Beck, Rämistrasse 3, 8001. Opening hours: Monday to Friday 8 am to 12 pm and 1.40 pm to 5 pm (Thursday from 8.30 am), Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm.
The travel clinic The travel clinic is part of the University of Zurich and you don't require an appointment. Just head there during opening hours. It's closed at weekends and on Tuesday. Your advantage: You don’t need to make an appointment beforehand and they have longer opening hours on Monday and Thursday.
