Travel Clinic (Yellow Fever & Others)

Travel Vaccines

Travelling, whether near or far, is a great way to relax and explore new places.

When you’re getting ready for your trip, remember to see a travel doctor at least 6-8 weeks before you go. They’ll help make sure you’re ready for your journey and can give you advice on staying healthy and any vaccines you might need for your destination. It’s a smart way to have a safe and enjoyable trip.

We pride ourselves on being your one-stop destination for all your travel medicine needs.

Yellow Fever Virus

Yellow fever is a viral disease spread through the bite of an infected mosquito. Most people will get better after these initial symptoms. However, after 24 to 48 hours when the fever and symptoms appear to settle, there can be a second phase of illness with high fever, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes due to liver inflammation), internal bleeding and in some cases death. The death rate is up to 50%.

There is no specific treatment for yellow fever. Thus, Yellow Fever vaccination is strongly recommended for all travellers who are 9 months of age or older visiting areas where there is a risk of yellow fever. Many countries including Australia require evidence of vaccination. Please check the requirements of the countries you are visiting prior to departure and talk to your doctor.
