Travel Medicine & Vaccinations In Adelaide

Many infectious diseases are largely controlled in Australia through widespread vaccination and other health measures. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many other countries. Travelling overseas dramatically increases health risks and infections can be fatal in rare cases.

This is why it is important to make sure you are vaccinated before travelling to another country.

Travel Vaccinations

Family Healthcare Erindale will take a risk assessment to clarify disease exposure and protective benefits against any concerns you may have. We provide general health counselling and can prescribe travel vaccinations as well as conduct pre-travel health screening and blood testing.

A risk assessment approach is best to clarify disease exposure and protective benefits against any concerns you may have. We provide general health counselling and can prescribe travel kits as well conduct pre-travel health screening and blood testing.

We advise on vaccinations and travel precautions to take, relative to your destination and season. The Australian Government’s National Health and Medical Research Council recommends all travelers be up to date with:

  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis
  • Measles, mumps, rubella and varicella
  • Diphtheria
  • Polio
  • Influenza
  • Pneumococcus
  • Hepatitis B

Depending on the destination you are travelling to and your activities, we routinely recommend prophylaxis against the following:

  • Meningococcal C
  • Hepatitis A
  • Typhoid
  • Tuberculosis
  • Rabies
  • Japanese encephalitis
  • Malaria
  • Yellow fever (required by law for certain destinations)
  • Cholera

There may be other infections not in this list that are unique to certain regions of the world. This is yet another reason to schedule a booking with our physicians before you travel.

We apologize for the inconvenience if you have had problems contacting the Surgery by telephone recently.

Our system has recently transferred over to the NBN service and this has been causing some issues.

AGAIN WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE and have been assured by our Provider that this is not an ongoing issue!
