At Ozemed Medical centre and Surgery, your doctor can discuss with you which vaccinations are required or recommended for the area you are travelling to. However, as not all diseases are preventable by vaccines and vaccination does not always provide 100% protection. You therefore need to take precautions when travelling. These may include:
- Mosquito prevention
- Taking a suitable first aid kit
- Carrying appropriate medications, which your doctor can discuss with you
Any questions that you have can be discussed with your doctor during your consultation, thereby enabling you to be fully prepared for your trip.
Our team can assist you with travel health advice, prescriptions for vaccines and other medications that you may require for your trip and the administration of your vaccinations therefore making the preparations for your trip a little easier.
We can perform the necessary vaccinations on people of all ages provided they meet certain criteria, which your doctor can discuss with you.
Vaccinations you may be considering for travel include:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Whooping Cough (Pertussis)
- Seasonal Influenza
It is best to make an appointment 4 to 6 weeks before your trip, as most vaccines take time to become effective in your body and some vaccines must be given in a series over a period of days or sometimes weeks. However, if it is less than 4 weeks before you leave, you should still see your doctor, as you may still benefit from vaccines or medications and other information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while travelling.
