TRAVEL MEDICINE

For patients requiring travel vaccinations for overseas travel, you will need to discuss your travel medicine health requirements with one of our doctors.

Your doctor may need to review past immunisation records in order to recommend the most appropriate vaccination schedule. Please bring records of any previous immunisations with you to the appointment

Your doctor will be able to print you a travel health plan and give you prescriptions for required vaccinations. If you make a double appointment it may be possible for you to purchase the vaccinations from the adjacent pharmacy and have them administered by the doctor in the same visit.

For any overseas travel we reccommend that you view the Australian Governments Smart Traveller Website. For more Information -
