Travel Medicine

Glebe Hill Family Practice offers Travel Medicine consultations for before and after overseas travel.

All of our General Practitioners can assist you with advise about Travel Health and vaccinations.

Dr Rekha Ratnagobal has a particular interest in Travel Medicine.

Glebe Hill Family Practice stocks vaccines which are commonly required prior to travel, including:

If you require a vaccine that we don't have in stock we can order it into the practice for you, or arrange it via a prescription.

Glebe Hill Family Practice is not yet certified to provide Yellow Fever vaccintion for those travelling to Yellow Fever endepic regions, but we can help you to seek those services elsewhere.

Our General Practitioners can provide individualised advice and assessment regarding existing medical conditions, and destination-specific advice regarding disease prevention, including Malaria and other insect-borne disease.

We provide our travellers with written material covering health concerns.

Make an appointment to talk with one of our Doctors about potential health risks and prevention of serious illness whilst travelling, and on return from travel. We recommend a long (30 minute) appointment to ensure adequate time to thorougly cover the assessment and management (including vaccinations) of your travel health needs.

Although appointments for vaccinations under the National Immunisation Program Schedule are bulk-billed, travel vaccination appointments are privately billed at Glebe Hill Family Practice.
