Travelling Overseas?

Travelling overseas can be very risky for your health and safety, potentially ruining your holiday! Therefore, it is very important to protect yourself by being prepared and get good travel advice and vaccinations beforehand.

We strongly recommend you make an appointment for a thorough assessment and receive vaccinations at least a month before you plan to travel overseas. Please bring your itinerary so we can properly assess your needs.

Some things you want to consider:

  1. Travelling to countries with lower standard food or water quality: Contaminated food and water will increase your risk of infections like gastroenteritis, hepatitis A, and some parasites.
  2. Travelling to rural or wilderness areas where you are likely to be exposed to farm animals and wildlife: Many of these animals carry rabies, as well as various other diseases carried by ticks and mosquitoes.
  3. Spending time outdoors, in forests or jungles, being exposed to mosquitoes: Mosquitoes can carry many serious diseases such as Malaria, Dengue Fever, and Yellow Fever.

Travel vaccines commonly used:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Influenza
  • Rabies
  • Typhoid
  • Yellow fever*
  • Cholera
  • Measles
  • Tetanus
  • Poliomyelitis
