We provide a complete range of travel vaccinations and travel health care services. Those travelling overseas, especially to developing countries, need to be vaccinated against a range of diseases. Illnesses may be caused by contaminated food or water, poor personal hygiene or infected insects.
Anyone travelling overseas should visit their doctor or travel health clinic to find out what vaccinations they need. Even if you think your travel destination is safe, keep in mind that disease outbreaks can and do happen. Vaccination offers good protection against many diseases.
Prior to travel it is a good idea to have a medical check-up for personalised advice on how to reduce your risk of illness. This will include advice on how to prevent infectious diseases transmitted by person or animal and how to stay well when abroad. We can also provide malaria protection tablets and a prescription for standby medicines you may need.
When visiting some destinations it is often advisable to receive vaccinations against diseases like Hepatitis A or Typhoid. Some countries require that you receive Yellow Fever and Malaria. We can give you the correct advice for your journey and design an appropriate vaccination schedule.
For most people an appointment should be made about 4 to 5 weeks prior to departure. If you’re planning something a little more adventurous then 6 to 8 weeks may be more appropriate.
