Before setting off on your overseas trip it is important to get accurate advice on how to remain healthy while you are away. We're able to provide expert advise as well as travel vaccinations and other travel health services.

Organising your travel health needs is complex and involves much more than just getting a few vaccinations.

We are able to provide detailed travel health advice.  Our nurses are trained vaccinators and we can administer the common vaccinations including: Covid-19, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Typhoid, Polio, Influenza, MMR, Meningitis and Rabies vaccine. Our doctors can prescribe malaria prevention and travel medications where necessary.

We recommend that you get your travel health organised at least 6 weeks prior to departing.

You will need to:

  • Book a 30 minute travel consultation with our GP/NP to discuss your specific travel needs.
  • Complete a pre-travel questionnaire (one questionnaire for each person traveling)  – this must be completed in full and returned at least 48 hours prior to the consult. You can return this to us in person or via email at

You may be required to have proof of certain vaccinations before you will be allowed to enter some countries.

Please note there is a charge for a travel consultation and vaccine administration– vaccination costs are additional. Please click below to download our Pre-Travel questionnaire.

You may be interested in looking at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website for further travel health information.

All travel vaccines MUST be paid for on the day of the  travel consultation.  They usually take 1–2 working days to arrive.

Yellow Fever or Tuberculosis Vaccinations

We do not provide Yellow Fever or TB (tuberculosis) vaccinations. If you require vaccination for Yellow Fever, it is done at Dee Street Healthcare Ltd in Timaru. Before making an appointment with Dee Street Healthcare, a health professional will need to complete a “Yellow Fever Referral Form,” which we can do for you. You will then need to call the number provided on the form to make an appointment in Timaru.

For further information or to book a travel health/vaccination appointment, please phone 03 435 0777 and speak with a practice nurse.
