Travel Health

Before setting off on your overseas trip it is important to get accurate advice on how to remain healthy whilst you are away. You may also be required to have proof of certain vaccinations before you will be allowed to enter some countries. Organising your travel health needs is complex and involves much more than just getting a few vaccinations. You need to get it sorted out at least 6 weeks prior to departing.

We are able to provide detailed travel health advice which is sourced from the Worldwise website. This website contains specific country-based information and is continuously updated by Dr Marc Shaw, travel health specialist. Our nurses are trained vaccinators and we can administer the common vaccinations including Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Typhoid, Polio, Influenza and Cholera vaccine. Our doctors can prescribe malaria prevention and travel medications where necessary.

Before you come in for your travel consult, please fill in this travel questionnaire and bring it with you to the consultation. It is important to include a detailed itinerary of your planned journey and any previous travel vaccination records that you may have.

The entire visit may take up to 1 hour and will involve doctor and nurse time.

We are not a specialist travel clinic and we do not provide Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, TB (tuberculosis) or Rabies vaccinations. In these instances, we suggest you visit WORLDWISE Travellers Health & Vaccination Centre. Furthermore, please seek advice from them if your plans include:

  • Travel to South America or Africa
  • Travel to remote areas for periods over 1 month
  • Adventure, alpine travel/ expeditions
  • Travel with young children ( less than 2 years of age)
  • Living and working in another country
