Travel Advice & Immunisation
Are you travelling overseas in the near future? There are a number of destinations where vaccination against the high risk of certain diseases is strongly recommended. Check with your doctor well before departure date to ensure you have the right vaccinations and that you have left enough time to complete the course, including any boosters that may be required. Here in NZ you can be confident the vaccination will be conducted using sterile equipment and procedures – not something you can guarantee in certain countries.

• Pre travel advice
• Travel vaccinations
• Prophylactic Medicines
• Post travel medical care
An experienced team of staff will provide you with all your health care advice, recommended prescriptions and required vaccinations for your chosen destinations.
