If you’re travelling overseas for work or a holiday, it’s a good idea to find out about travel vaccinations. Our doctors have a special interest in travel medicine and are well trained to help manage all your travel medicine needs.
The Australian Government provides an updated summary of required vaccinations and health alerts on its smartraveller.gov.au website.
For your convenience, we keep most common travel vaccines for adults and children including Yellow fever, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B. For more information on the costs of vaccines, please contact our reception team on (02) 9023 9999.
Yellow Fever Accredited Centre
Milsons Point Medical Centre is a fully accredited Yellow fever vaccination centre by NSW health. We always have the vaccination in stock and can issue you an official vaccination certificate on the spot after your vaccination.
When to get your travel vaccinations
If you plan to go traveling, it is recommended that you see a GP at least 4 weeks prior to your departure date. This will ensure that you have adequate time to obtain protection before you travel.
If you’re traveling last minute and don’t have time for vaccinations, it is still important to have a chat to your doctor. Travel medicine is not only about getting vaccinated. Good travel hygiene can help you minimize jet lag, protect you against traveller’s diarrhoea and infectious diseases like dengue fever, rabies and malaria. Your doctor can advise you on the best medications to take with you in case you get sick.
