This is an unusual request and a bit of a shot in the dark but I would appreciate any assistance if someone knows the answer to my question. I am travelling in Switzerland in July and will be in Zermatt on 16 July. At present I am in Myanmar and unfortunately was bitten by a dog requiring me to have a rabies vaccination. I will need the third in the series of injections on 16 July whilst in Zermatt and I wondered if anyone knows of a medical centre in Zermatt where this can be done, or would someone know contact details of a medical professional in Zermatt whom I can get in touch with to discuss how viable this is.

Many thanks

Bill

In addition to the helpful reply from ikdf62, there is a "Doc in a Box" at main stations, such as Bern, Luzern, Zürich.

Don't know what is available close to Zermatt, but the tourist info there can definitely guide you. Might check in Brig on the way through.

Slowpoke.

Hi Bill,

I wouldn't be surprised if the vaccine had to be specially ordered in, or you might have to attend a centre elsewhere in Switzerland to receive the vaccination.

It might be worth making enquiries through the Swiss Rabies Centre.

Thanks Alpenrose - i will certainly make specific enquiries to make sure I can get the vaccine whilst I am in the country - I am assured Switzerland has been rabies free for some time so perhaps there is no need for stocks of vaccine to be held.

I appreciate your help.

Bill
