Travel Medicine and Vaccinations

Travel vaccines are very safe and highly effective. Ideally you should make a travel medicine appointment at least six weeks before travel. We will also vaccinate “last minute” travellers “better late than never”. The cost of vaccination is modest, relative to the potential consequences of contracting serious illness overseas. See further information under Services section.
