Need an Appointment?

Please phone (08) 8267 3544 if you wish to make an appointment.

Our receptionists can only provide general information about what services we provide, therefore a consultation  with one of our travel health specialists is necessary to determine exactly what vaccinations you'll need for your trip.

 

Walk-in Flu and Whooping Cough Clinic

If you are just after a flu or whooping cough shot and are not travelling, you do not need to make an appointment - just walk in when the sign is out and we will fit you in. It usually takes just a few minutes.

 

Travelling Overseas

To become fully vaccinated for a trip is quite a lengthy process from start to finish so here are some handy hints...

When to book:

Clinic hours:

Monday          2:00pm to 6:00pm

Tuesday         10:00am to 5:30pm

Wednesday   10:00am to 5:30pm

Thursday       10:00am to 5:30pm

Friday             10:00am to 5:00pm

Our reception is staffed from 9am to 5:30pm Monday to Thursday and until 5:00pm on Fridays.

Phone us at least 1 week before you need the appointment to get a time that suits. Ideally this should be about 8 weeks before your trip. Some vaccine schedules take up to a month to be given and a week to work after that, so the more time the better.

If you have left it to the last minute we can still vaccinate for most things even in the last week before you go, so don't think it's too late.

See 'Have I Left it Too Late?' for the latest you can have a vaccination prior to a trip and still get cover.

 

If you are seriously unwell, even more time may be required as we may wait until you are on less medication before giving some live vaccines. This particularly applies to steroids and medication to treat cancer.

 

What to bring:

Bring a record of any other vaccines you have had since you left school, especially if travel related. You may need to phone your doctor to get this information, and it can take up to a week to get the information if it is pre 2000 (often archived). Have a ring around and find out when you had your last tetanus booster, and if your health fund will cover any of the vaccine costs (under Pharmaceutical extras).

 

On the day of your appointment:

We will have paperwork for you to complete and material to read, so please be punctual. We try not to keep you waiting and have a pretty good track record of running on time! The appointment with the travel consultant(s) may take up to 45 minutes or longer if a family is involved.

If you are coming in with young children we recommend you also bring a non-travelling babysitter, perhaps a relative, so that you can relax and focus on the information given in the appointment rather than chasing after the little ones.

We keep everything on site, so no prescriptions are necessary and you can have the vaccines on the day, so you will not have to go to the pharmacy! Any booster doses can be scheduled before your trip.

Due to the experience of our nursing staff your injections will be surprisingly less painful and some preparations can be administered orally!
