Travel Vaccinations

Travel Vaccinations are included under Wellness.

Travel Vaccinations is a service that helps you access the recommended immunisations before travelling overseas. Some countries have infectious diseases not common in Australia, and you may need to get a travel vaccination before you leave. This can help prevent you getting sick while you’re away.

Vaccinations are generally needed before travelling to Africa, India, South America and some parts of Asia.

You might need Travel Vaccinations if you...

  • Are travelling to Africa, India, South America or Asia in the near future
  • Travel overseas often
  • Will be visiting rural areas on your next overseas trip
