COVID-19 TESTING is currently available for work or travel requirements. Click here for more PCR test information

The Exeter Travel Clinic (and our Barnstaple site) remain open, but currently not at weekends. Any specific test enquiries should be emailed:

Our covid-19 PCR testing is undertaken by trained, medical professionals and processed by a local laboratory.

Our samples are couriered to the laboratory each day. The samples are then processed and the results are normally back by midnight of the following day. If the results come back after working hours, they will be emailed to you on the morning of the next working day.

Why do Covid tests cost so much?

All healthcare professionals require extra certification to provide PCR testing services. This accreditation is hugely expensive and unfortunately, unavoidable.

Please note: we are not part of either the test-to-release scheme, or the day 2 and 8 return home scheme,c_crop,w_1080,q_80,g_center,g_faces/misc/default-featured.jpgYellow Fever icon

Yellow Fever

Spread by mosquitos

Yellow Fever Certificate International Health Regulations dictate that Yellow Fever certificates are sometimes required when entering a country. Some countries require proof of vaccination in the last 10 years, others will accept older certificates. Certificate requirements will be dependent on the countries visited and the order in which you visit them. Yellow fever is a live vaccine and therefore not suitable for a small group people.

What is it?

Yellow fever is a Flaviviridaevirus, found in humans and monkeys.

How it is caught?

It is spread primarily by the aedes Egypti mosquito that bites during the day.

What does it do?

In most cases it causes fever, headache, chills, back pain tiredness, nausea and vomiting. In sever cases it causes jaundice, and internal bleeding.

Where is it?

Yellow Fever is found in parts of Africa and South America.

How is it prevented?

Protect yourself against mosquitoes.

The Yellow Fever vaccine is a single injection, and in most individuals will last for life.
