When making an appointment for travel vaccinations please:
- Advise reception the appointment is for travel medicine, so you are booked in to see a doctor who specialises in this area.
- Allow six weeks before your departure date for the first visit to maximize vaccine coverage. This is not always possible but is ideal. We can still help you stay well while travelling whatever your departures date.
For the appointment:
- Bring details regarding the length of your trip, your accommodation and vacation activities. These are important factors when advising you regarding travel health. Bring your itinerary so that we can give you the best possible advice.
- Alert the doctor if you have any chronic illnesses, are allergic to anything or take any medications.
Fees and administration
- The initial consult fee is $91; a portion of this can be claimed from Medicare.
- Follow up visits to complete the vaccine course planned at this visit are bulk- billed.
- If you have private insurance with pharmaceutical cover, you may be able to claim a portion of the vaccine costs.
We stock a full range Travel Kits available for purchase which include medications for gastrointestinal illnesses, antibiotics and other prescription medicines that may help you manage your health while abroad.
