Vaccines are like superheroes, protecting us from harmful diseases! They're crucial for keeping us and our communities healthy. By getting immunised, we build a shield against illnesses and help stop their spread. It's not just about our own health but also about looking out for each other.

Travel vaccines


If you're travelling overseas you may require vaccinations to protect yourself against diseases specific to your destination.

You'll need to book an appointment with a clinician first to discuss which vaccines you need.

You can then see a nurse and book in for your vaccinations. It's recommended to book your travel immunisations 8-10 weeks before you travel to allow your body to develop immunity and be fully protected. Sometimes you may need more than one dose, so might need extra time to space them apart.

The administering of travel vaccines is bookable in the app and open to enrolled and casual patients.
