Frequently asked questions and answers

1. How can I book an appointment?

An appointment can be booked online via our booking system. Please note the number of persons per appointment. If an additional vaccination appointment is necessary after a consultation, please book a follow-up vaccination appointment separately for each person to be vaccinated. 
Alternatively, you can make an appointment by email or by phone: 030/ 450 565 712; 08:00-15:00. Unfortunately, a travel consultation by phone or email is not offered.

2. Can I also come without an appointment?

No. Please be advised that a consultation without an appointment is not possible.

3. Is a travel consultation by phone possible?

No. Please consider that it is not possible to provide travel advice by phone.

4. I have booked an appointment for a consultation. Can I bring an accompanying person?

There are consulting appointments for a total of 1-2 people and for 3-5 people. You can respectively bring additional people according to the number booked.

5. How can I cancel a booked appointment?

You can cancel your reserved appointment via the cancel link in the email you received as confirmation. Alternatively, you can also send an email to tropeninstitut(at)

6. Can I get vaccinated on the day of the consultation?

Yes. If vaccinations are necessary, they can be administered on site during the consultation appointment. Please do not forget your certificate of vaccination!

7. My family doctor has advised me regarding travel vaccinations, can I also directly book an appointment for the follow-up vaccination - without the medical consultation?

No. Please understand that due to legal reasons, a medical consultation is mandatory before a vaccination in our institute in order to discuss the exact indications and side effects.

8. How long before a travel should I come for the medical consultation?

Since some vaccines (for example rabies) need to be vaccinated more frequently, a consultation 6-8 weeks before the trip is useful. The earlier the better. For some important travel vaccinations (for example Hepatitis A), a vaccination protection can be built up even at short notice. Therefore, you should come to us for a consultation "better late than never".

9. Until when before travel should the vaccination against yellow fever be done?

If a yellow fever vaccination is required, it is recommended that it be administered at least 10 days prior to departure to allow sufficient time for the vaccine to have effect. A yellow fever vaccination becomes officially valid after 10 days with regard to possible regulations in international travel.

10. Do I have to buy the vaccine at the pharmacy?

No, we have all standard vaccines on site.

11. Can I buy the vaccine from you and then get vaccinated at my family doctor's practice?

No. We are not authorized to sell vaccines. So we can not provide you with vaccines. However, all vaccines that we have in stock can be vaccinated right in our clinic.

12. Do you also vaccinate children?

Yes. We advise and administer travel vaccinations for all ages. However, please note that we do not stock all standard vaccines for infants and young children.

13. Can I get vaccinated in your clinic even if I don't have any health insurance?

Yes. You can book a vaccination consultation and get vaccinated even without health insurance. Travel consultations and vaccinations need to be paid privately. You will receive an invoice and a receipt that you can submit to your health insurance provider.

14. Will my health insurance cover the costs?

There are many health insurance companies that reimburse the costs for travel vaccinations, consultation fees and malaria prophylaxis. However, we cannot guarantee whether and to which amount your health insurance company will contribute to the costs. For detailed informations please contact your health insurance in advance.

15. Can you also directly invoice my health insurance company for the travel medicine services provided?

Yes. We have an agreement with the following health insurance companies: Barmer, BIG-Direct, BKK-VBU and IKK Berlin-Brandenburg.
