Our team are highly qualified and will provide up to date advice tailored to your travel plans.

Travelling overseas is a fantastic and exciting experience whether you are going on a trip of a lifetime, a family holiday or business trip. Making sure you are appropriately vaccinated, have the right travel advice and precautionary medication will help make the most of your trip.

Travellers are often tempted to skip travel advice and vaccinations in order to save money. This is often a decision travellers’ regret when they experience, first hand, how disruptive and costly even minor medical conditions can be when travelling overseas.

We cater for individuals, families, small groups and large groups such as school and sporting teams.

Common travel vaccinations include: Hepatitis A, Cholera, Tetanus, Japanese Encephalitis, Rabies, Meningococcal, Tuberculosis, Typhoid and Yellow Fever. Yellow Fever is required for many African, Central and South American destinations – Bowral Street Medical Practice is an Australian Government Accredited Yellow Fever Centre.

What to Expect

  • A long appointment is necessary and a shorter follow up appointment/s may also be required.
  • The initial consultation will identify what medications are required for the country/ies you are travelling to and your current immunisation status.
  • Your medical history, current conditions, medications, etc will be reviewed to ensure recommended travel vaccinations are appropriate to your personal situation.
  • Preventative measures you can take to help with self care while you are away will also be discussed.
  • Book your appointment at least 4-6 weeks before travelling - many vaccinations take a number of weeks to become fully effective or need to be spaced as they cannot be given together.
  • Some overseas countries may ask for proof that medications are for personal use so please ask your doctor if a letter is required for your destination/s.
