Are You Travelling Overseas This Year?

Don’t forget to get your travel vaccinations so that your trip is enjoyable and free of adverse health concerns!  

By getting vaccinated, you are protecting yourself against infectious diseases while you’re traveling. It also helps to ensure that you don’t bring infectious diseases home to your family and friends.

Did you know that different countries have different vaccination requirements? 

We recommend that you visit your GP to get your vaccination at least 6 to 12 weeks before you leave Australia. You may need several doses of a vaccine to achieve full immunity and your body will also need time to develop full immunity. 

Get medical advice from your GP 

Your personal situation can affect your health risks overseas. You need medical advice tailored to you, even if you’re usually fit and healthy. 
Only your GP can advise what vaccinations and preventative health measures you should take. See your GP to find out what is right for you.
