We are an established general practice located in Melbourne. Handy for residents of South bank, Albert Park and the surrounding area, we offer primary healthcare that’s suitable for every member of the family. As well as a range of treatment options for acute and chronic conditions, we have particular expertise in scheduled vaccinations and travel immunisations.
If you’re considering foreign travel, additional vaccinations could be an essential part of keeping you healthy during your visit. We provide reasonably priced travel immunisations in Melbourne, offering local residents a wide range of different vaccines, depending on where they intend to travel. As well as immunisations for exotic locations, we also have the flu shot available for South Melbourne residents. Why suffer from the flu when you don’t have to?
Immunisations for travel
Different vaccines are required for certain countries, so it’s important that you consult your GP at least 6 to 12 weeks before you travel to ensure you receive the right immunisations. The recommended vaccines for travel depend on a number of factors, including your age, the location you’re travelling to, the season, your vaccination history, any underlying medical conditions you have and whether you’re pregnant.
It’s important that you don’t wait until the last minute to visit our clinic to discuss your vaccinations as you might need more than one dose of a certain vaccine. You may also find that your body needs time to develop full immunity before you travel.
Are you up to date with all your immunisations?
Heading off on your travels is an important time to check whether you and your children are up to date with all your immunisations, including childhood vaccinations and the necessary boosters. Some of these immunisations include:
- Influenza (flu)
- Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR)
- Diphtheria-tetanus-whooping cough (pertussis)
If you do not have these vaccinations, or you have not had any boosters, you increase your chances of getting these diseases while abroad. If travellers bring these diseases back into Australia, this could lead to disease outbreaks.
