children 6mths to 5 years

people with a chronic health condition, which is detailed in the Government’s criteria

For everyone else, the Flu Vaccine will cost $20.

 

Travel immunisations

For overseas travel immunisations, a half hour appointment is required with a doctor. This allows time for travel and health advice,  prescribed medications to cover you for any health risks associated with your travel and travel vaccinations.

Please complete the Travel Health Plan and bring it along to your Travel appointment. Travel health plan found on the forms page.

We recommend you make an appointment to see your doctor at least 6 weeks prior to your travel dates.

Most vaccines are available, however at times there are shortages and some vaccines may have to be ordered for later delivery.
