About Us

Travel Health Plus is a privately owned and operated clinic primarily located in Fremantle, just 20 minutes from the Perth CBD. Recognised as leaders in the field of travel medicine, our vaccination and medical expertise extends to immunisation for all of life – from children to the elderly, for work or pleasure.

Enthusiastic and committed to health promotion, we have participated in vaccine research and our staff regularly present at educational events and contribute to medical publications. We have close links with industry, the Universities of Notre Dame, UWA and Murdoch and have been involved in the international travel preparation for state emergency services personnel responding to international disasters, non-government aid organisations and school groups, as well as Olympic athletes and sporting groups such as the Dockers, Kookaburras and The Western Force.

Our Purpose, Our Promise

The purpose of Travel Health Plus is to deliver a world-class vaccination service to the people of Perth through a group of dedicated and professional staff members. With a team of avid travellers, parents, and carers at the helm of Travel Health Plus, we know the importance of being protected and ensuring that you stay protected for life. We focus on each patient as an individual and give them the time to talk through their vaccination plan to ensure comfort and confidence. We pride ourselves on staying informed and up to date on all advances in the industry, while always leading with an ethical approach. In order to extend these values beyond our shores, we actively work with UNICEF through our Vax4Vax program, providing funding to the established vaccination delivery program; giving vaccinations, protection, and life to those in underdeveloped countries.

Why Travel Health Plus

Our boutique clinic provides a friendly and personalised service that is convenient and value for money. A true one stop shop as all vaccines, medications and healthy travel products are kept onsite. The clinic is staffed by doctors and nurses who have years of immunisation and travel health experience and who have access to up to date information regarding disease outbreaks. We offer the full range of vaccinations including but not limited to yellow fever, Japanese Encephalitis, influenza and rabies vaccines.
