Heading abroad? Check in with our doctors to ensure you and your family (especially the little ones!) are safe and vaccinated before your trip. Also remember that some countries require mandatory vaccination so always plan this well ahead of your travels.

Some of the more common medical conditions you may need to be aware of while travelling include:

  • Gastroenteritis
  • Jet lag
  • Flu
  • Altitude Sickness
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Malaria
  • Dengue
  • Bali Belly
  • Yellow Fever
  • Hepatitis
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Typhoid
  • Rabies
  • Polio

Make sure you book a consultation at Maudsland Medical Centre or Emerald Lakes Medical Clinic at least 8 weeks before you plan on travelling to ensure that any immunisations that require a course of treatment can be completed in time. A consultation closer to your departure date is also beneficial as it can reduce the risk of illness while you are away and ensure all current prescriptions are up to date and available to you throughout your holiday period.
