Every destination has its unique health risks, obviously some more than others – which is where we come in.
In the ever changing international health environment, you need to make sure you are getting current, accurate advice from caring professionals with many years of experience. Our clinics offer you this and more.
Travel health advice encompasses so much more than vaccinations, something people commonly focus on. Your itinerary may also put you at risk of non-vaccine preventable illnesses (for example dengue, zika and altitude sickness) so our travel consultations cover a wide range of topics.
We are a licensed Yellow Fever vaccination clinic.
If you have time then 6 - 8 weeks before you leave is perfect. If its closer than that already, we suggest booking in as soon as possible.
Travelling at short notice? Its never too late to come and get advice, but an impending departure date may influence other factors, such as what vaccines you can have for example.
Bring along your itinerary if you have one, but we can also tailor advice to broad itineraries if your trip is relatively unplanned.
Don't forget to bring along old vaccination records. It saves you time and money if we know what you have already had.
Our standard consultations take around 30 minutes with the doctor if we are seeing you for the first time for this trip. You can expect to be in the clinic for around an hour if also having vaccinations. It will be longer if you are coming as part of a family or group. Please take this into consideration when planning your appointment.
As long as your trip isn't business related, costs associated with an appointment at Travel Health Plus are similar to visiting a general practice.
If you have a Medicare card - children and university students have no out of pocket consultation fees. For everyone else there is a one off gap on an initial consultation, with no further out of pocket consultation expense on subsequent visits for the same trip. This does not include travel vaccinations which are generally not covered by Medicare.
If you don't have a Medicare card our staff are happy to explain costs to you in more detail.
