Be Protected For Travel
What do you need for your trip? Each traveller and itinerary is different which is why we always recommend having an individualised consultation rather than following a generic list. We have however picked some common regions and summarised the major health differences to give you an idea of some of the things that may be considered. The information is broad and general, may not include less commonly recommended vaccines and does not take into account your particular circumstance or itinerary.
As a starting point for all international travel we review routine immunisations, including tetanus, measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, influenza and hepatitis B, boosting when necessary. You also need to consider that whilst vaccination is a vital part of overseas travel preparation there are other important things we may discuss relevant for your itinerary, such as malaria, dengue and Zika, mosquito avoidance measures, travellers diarrhoea protection and treatment, altitude advice, personal safety, DVT risk and more.

Europe & North America/Eastern Europe & Baltic States

Western Europe and North America are considered to have similar health risks to Australia, so while the risks of tropical illness are less than other areas there are some regional differences such as dengue fever and Zika virus in Florida, Lyme disease in the North Eastern USA and mosquito borne illness in South Eastern Europe. Tick borne encephalitis is also unique to Central and Eastern Europe in forested areas. Most importantly it is advisable to make sure routine immunisations are up to date. The further east and south you travel in Europe, the higher the risk becomes of food and water borne illness and mosquito borne illness. Hepatitis A and typhoid fever vaccination may be recommended for Eastern Europe and Russia.
