Travel Vaccines and Advice
We have a stock of common travel vaccines to most destinations. If any unusual vaccination is required, we will be able to order the vaccine promptly. On occasion, patients will need to purchase their vaccines from a pharmacist after their doctor provides a prescription.
Bayside Medical Group is accredited as a Yellow Fever vaccination provider.
We have access to current travel vaccination databases.
As travel vaccination can be complex, we recommend that you see a doctor in an appointment to discuss your itinerary and determine your vaccine requirements. Travel immunisation can take up to six weeks to complete so consult your doctor as early as possible.
