Vaccination

We have Q fever and yellow fever vaccines in stock

 When making an appointment for travel vaccinations please note that you need to:

  • 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. We understand this is not always possible and we can still help you stay well while travelling whatever your departure date.
  • When you have decided on the length of your trip, the type of accommodation and activities that you will be involved in, please bring your itinerary so that we can give you the best possible advice. These are all important factors when advising you regarding travel health.
  • Alert the doctor if you have any chronic illnesses, are allergic to anything or take any medications.

 

The initial consult fee is $79; 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.
