Travel Health Clinic

Springs Medical is...

  • A member of the Travel Medicine Alliance (TMA) - a network of specially trained doctors whose job is to help you prepare to travel overseas.
  • An Australian Government Accredited Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure we believe it is important to discuss your travel plans with one of our specialist Travel Health GPs so you can make sure you are best protected from illness and disease. Many illnesses picked up by travellers are preventable through immunisation and safe travel practices. Our GPs will be able to advise you on what vaccinations are recommended for the areas you are travelling to, how best to protect yourself from illness and what to do if you become unwell.

Our Travel Health Services Include:

  • Comprehensive travel health consultations
  • Full range of vaccinations including: Yellow Fever, Rabies and Japanese Encephalitis
  • Completion of vaccination record booklet to meet health regulation guidelines
  • Fitness for travel medical assessments
  • Provision of travel medications to prevent illness
  • Educational material and travel books
  • Travel kits

Specialised expedition services are also available – please email travel@springsmedical.com.au for more information.

How and when to book a Travel Health Clinic Appointment

We recommend a travel health consultation at least 6-8 weeks prior to departure; however travellers can still benefit from a consultation closer to travelling.

Please call us to book a dedicated 30 minute Travel Health Clinic consultation with your preferred doctor. Where possible, this will be followed by an appointment with our nurse for required vaccinations. Follow-up appointments may be required for some vaccines.

Joint members of the same travelling party may share the same 30 minute appointment with the doctor. Each member will be billed separately and will need a separate appointment with the nurse for vaccinations.

Please bring the following to your consultation:

  • A completed Springs Medical Pre-Travel Questionnaire (download document here).
  • A copy of your travel itinerary
  • Any previous immunisation records

Fees

All consultations, vaccinations and products must be paid in full at the time of consultation.

Please retain your detailed account and receipt as Private Health Insurance may rebate your vaccine costs – please check with your Private Health Fund.
