Travelling to different countries is a wonderful adventure and one that exposes you to many amazing experiences. Unfortunately it can also expose you to a range of health risks. Fortunately, medical science has developed effective vaccines available at most medical centres and travel clinics so you can stay protected against many diseases that could cause you great illness and ruin your holiday or worse.
You should make an appointment to see one of our experienced Doctors around one to two months before you depart in order to allow sufficient time for your vaccinations. If you are planning a quick last minute trip however, we can still assist you. Our Doctors will look at your medical history, travel destinations, duration and season of travel to offer expert advice on the right vaccinations and medications for you.
If you would like to book a travel medicine appointment at one of our medical centres and travel clinics it is best to book ahead to ensure that the vaccination is in stock and that a nurse is on hand to conduct the vaccination, however walk-in appointments are also welcome. The cost of your vaccinations will vary depending on the type required so if you would like specific cost information please contact your local SmartClinics Family Medical Centre. Some private health funds cover part of the vaccination charges depending on your private health cover.
To make an appointment for travel vaccinations and advice at one of SmartClinics travel clinics around Brisbane or Gold Coast, please call your local SmartClinics centre or click the pink booking button above to book online. Its also a good idea to spend some time researching about the countries you’re travelling to so that you are informed and prepared about any local health issues, laws and customs.
