During your consultation, your doctor will take into account your travel itinerary, style of accommodation, activities while travelling, past medical history, allergies and a range of other factors.
It is important that you allow 30-45 minutes for your consultation and bring your travel itinerary, vaccination records, and details of any medication you are regularly or intermittently taking. If you are travelling for long periods and through multiple countries, it is often necessary to have more than one consultation.
Depending on the complexity and length of your travel consultation, the fee will vary between $104.00 and $189.00, in addition to vaccination costs. Most travel vaccinations and medications are available for purchase through Healthcare on Collins, including Yellow Fever vaccines and travel diarrhea kits, and official World Health Authority Vaccination Booklets.
If you are planning to travel to a country where Yellow Fever is endemic, it is important to note that Healthcare on Collins is a Department of Health approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre and many doctors are individually accredited to administer the Yellow Fever Vaccine.
