Travel Medicine

Victoria Harbour Medical Centre is an accredited travel vaccination clinic.

We carry a stock of the most common travel vaccines including Yellow Fever.

We recommend you attend 6-8 weeks prior to intended travel to seek travel medicine and vaccination advice.

We request that you bring in a copy of your vaccination history and travel vaccination certificate book (yellow book) if you already have one.

Medicare does not cover the cost of travel vaccinations but this cost may be refundable in part from your private health insurer.

For complex travel advice, we request you book a long (double) consultation.
