Are you thinking of traveling? If so, we recommend you speak with a GP or travel clinic if you have plans to travel as they can advise you on any immunisations you may need. Please ensure you contact them well in advance to ensure you have enough time to be vaccinated. If you do not have a GP visit the Find a Health Service website.

You can also find information on Smartraveller.

Yellow Fever

You may require a Yellow Fever immunisation for travel to some African and South Amercian countries.

Only Yellow Fever providers can give you the vaccine.

Please see the Department of Health’s factsheet on Yellow Fever for more information.

Measles

Measles is a highly infectious disease that can cause brain damage and death. Measles is easily prevented by two doses of the MMR vaccine.

Yet many people born since 1966 are not adequately protected against measles. Ask your GP to check your vaccination record. If you’re not sure, there’s no harm in getting a third dose.
