Travel Clinic

We offer a wide range of free travel vaccinations and advice. Charges will apply to some vaccinations. Appointments are in normal surgery time.

Before travelling overseas, it is important to be aware of the possible health risks and how to prevent problems, or minimise the chances of them occurring. Most importantly, you should know:

  • whether there are any specific health risks in the country you are travelling to for which you need to take precautions - for example, malaria
  • how to avoid becoming ill when you are abroad
  • what to do if you do become ill when you are abroad
  • how to get emergency medical treatment when you are abroad

If you are travelling abroad you will need to start thinking about your travel vaccinations 4-6 weeks before you're due to leave as some vaccinations can take time to become effective.

Vaccinations we offer are:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Typhoid
  • Yellow Fever
  • Rabies
  • Tetanus
  • Anti Malarial Tablets
