Travel vaccines

We have a large range of travel vaccines available on site for your convenience. Our travel vaccines are competitive in price with travel clinic prices.

It’s important that you discuss your personal travel plans with a health professional to ensure that you have the correct vaccinations for your trip and any booster doses of child vaccinations your child may need.

  • New vaccines are constantly being released and diseases continue to evolve.
  • Vaccinations may be an entry requirement of some countries. In some countries you may be refused entry or required to have the vaccination at the border.
  • It’s never too late to vaccinate; However, some vaccines require a long period to take effect and more than one dose may be needed so ideally check with our clinic 6-8 weeks prior to travelling.

The doctors at our clinic can discuss with you what vaccines are required according to your needs. Please explain your requirements when booking an appointment with us. A full range of childhood vaccines are available onsite too.
