Some illnesses you can catch overseas can be prevented with immunisation. Anyone travelling overseas should one of our GP’s to find out what vaccinations they need. Even if you think your travel destination is safe, keep in mind that disease outbreaks can and do happen. Vaccination offers good protection against many diseases.
A few tips before booking your appointment:
Get in early, it can take a few weeks to gain full immunity from the vaccinations. It is important that you don’t wait until the last minute to visit your GP to discuss the immunisation needs for your trip. You might need several doses and you might need time after immunisation for your body to develop full immunity.
