If you are travelling outside Australia, you should visit us 6 to 12 weeks before you travel for a consultation.
Depending on your destination you may need vaccines or preventative medications to avoid catching diseases overseas. Some medicines don’t kick in immediately and it is important to receive any necessary vaccines on time to ensure their effectiveness. A consultations with our GPs can help you identify the health risks associated with your destination and provide you with advice about the measures you should take in order to have a safe, healthy and enjoyable trip.
We can also help you determine whether it is safe for you to travel if you’ve been sick recently or if you have a condition such as a heart condition, diabetes or pregnancy which may affect your ability to travel.
