If you’re travelling overseas for work or a holiday, it’s a good idea to book in with your doctor 6 weeks prior to leaving for a pre-travel consultation.
Within this consultation you’ll:
- Discuss the recommended Travel Vaccinations.
- Get current travel advice and education
- Organise any necessary medications such as malaria, schistosomiasis, travellers’ diarrhoea, jetlag, and allergies, among others.
Our doctors have a special interest in travel medicine and are well-trained to help manage all your travel medicine needs.
The Australian Government provides an updated summary of required vaccinations and health alerts on its smartraveller.gov.au website.
For your convenience, we keep most common travel vaccines for adults and children including:

When to get your Travel Vaccinations
If you plan to go traveling, it is recommended that you see a GP at least 6 weeks prior to your departure date. This will ensure that you have adequate time to obtain protection before you travel.
If you’re traveling last minute and don’t have time for vaccinations, it is still important to have a chat with your doctor. Travel medicine is not only about getting vaccinated. Good travel hygiene can help you minimize jet lag, and protect you against traveler’s diarrhea and infectious diseases like dengue fever, rabies, and malaria.
Your doctor can advise you on the best medications to take with you in case you get sick.
