Immunisation (childhood and travel)
We are committed to reduce and eradicate vaccine preventable diseases in our community. Our team can provide advice on and administer a range of vaccinations for all ages and reasons including childhood vaccinations, influenza prevention, travel, work and vaccinations around pregnancy.
Did you know the most common complaint from travellers to foreign countries is traveller’s diarrhoea? Do you know how to reduce your chances of getting a mosquito-borne disease? We can help with advice on how to minimise these and other risks. In our travel consults, we focus on health promotion and prevention, including:
- Travel vaccinations – vaccinations are only a small element of any travel consult. And your medical history must be taken into account prior to any immunisations. We can vaccinate you for the following:
- Yellow fever – we are an approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Provider
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Chicken pox
- Meningococcal disease
- Japanese Encephalitis
- up to date travel information to prevent illness/disease we cannot vaccinate against – it is important to be aware of the latest WHO (World Health Organisation) recommendations for travel to any part of the world. We have access to this as well as all the latest outbreak information for your destination.
- malaria prevention
If you are travelling overseas it is important that you book an appointment 4-10 weeks prior to travel for advice and necessary immunisations. This is to ensure that you have immunity when you arrive at your destination/s.
Fees are incurred for injection/s and a small gap is charged for the travel consult. Please phone the clinic for detailed information.
The practice provides all standard childhood immunisations and are administered according to SA health schedule. This program is Medicare funded.
