Travelling overseas can mean you are exposed to disease or infection. Travel health advice helps you understand the risk(s) associated with travelling overseas and you’ll have the best chance of minimising potential problems. The appropriate vaccinations and medical advice can be the difference between a great trip, and one spent recovering.
Please make an appointment to discuss your destination/s and the recommended vaccines at least 1 month before travel.
