Pre Travel

We are a centre of excellence, providing expert pre-travel advice, holiday vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis to the general public and a range of companies.  

For overseas travel that will last more than a month, ideally it is best to visit the travel clinic around 4-6 weeks before travelling.  For shorter trips visit at least 2 - 3 weeks before.  However, even if travelling at short notice we still recommend attending for a consultation including vaccinations.

We offer a range of services including:

  • Pre-travel risk assessment
  • Country specific information and advice
  • Vaccinations and malaria prophylaxis
  • A wide range of travel health products 
  • Short notice/evening/weekend appointments

Questions often asked about appointments

What should I bring with me?
  • Ideally a list of previous vaccinations (this can be a verbal list)
  • How many doses did you have of a particular vaccine? (for example, some vaccines such as hepatitis A and B require multiple doses)
  • A list of any medication you may be on
  • Any relevant medical history
  • A copy of your travel itinerary
  • Wear loose top for ease of access to upper arm for vaccination
  • Your child's 'Red Book' if attending
How long will my consultation be?

Your consultation will usually be between 20 and 40 minutes.

Do I have to have a consultation and then return to have the vaccines?

No, usually the vaccines recommended are administered during your consultation. You may need to return at another time if a course of vaccines are recommended.

Will I receive a vaccination certificate?

Yes, you will be issued with a vaccination booklet which will contain certificates for appropriate vaccinations.
