What vaccinations do I need?
It is not possible to have a standard list for each country as it may vary depending on a multitude of factors, including which part of the country you’re travelling to, accommodation (eg. resort vs backpacking), the length of your trip and your activities whilst there.
Our doctors are experts in travel medicine and therefore will be able to make individualised recommendations for you at the time of your consultation.
How soon should I have my vaccinations before my trip?
Ideally, a minimum of 2-3 weeks prior to travelling where possible but we can accommodate travellers even up until a day before departure.
Can I just get your nurse to do the vaccinations if I know what is required, or my regular doctor has already advised what I need?
No – a consultation is legally required with one of our travel doctors before our nurse can administer any vaccines.
How long will the consultation take and how much will it cost?
We normally allocate 30 minutes for the initial consultation including the administration of vaccinations and medications. The fee for this longer consult is $148, with a rebate of $76.95 from Medicare.
This fee may be reduced at the discretion of our doctor for shorter consultations or for couples and families.

Yellow Fever – $120
Rabies – $135 (per dose)
