I have booked for my trip, where do I go from here?
You look after your trip and leave us to look after you! Book an appointment to see Travel Doctors at Teneriffe to discuss your travel plans and we will ensure that your travel health needs are met. The optimal time to obtain travel health advice is at least 4 weeks before travel. This is to ensure that we allow your body enough time to build up immunity if you require travel immunisations. When you ring for an appointment, please inform us of the country you are traveling to and the duration you are visiting so we can arrange a detailed, updated and personalised letter of recommendation on travel health and immunisations when you attend our clinic. Remember also to bring your previous immunisation records if you have a copy.
Yellow Fever Vaccination
Yellow Fever is a viral infection transmitted by mosquitos that leads to serious illness and even death. It is a quarantinable disease in Australia.
If you are travelling to Africa, Central or South America, you should check with your doctor if the region you are travelling to would expose you to Yellow Fever Infection and if immunisation is required. It is important to also inform your doctor the countries you intend to transit through, as some countries require you to have a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate upon entry, or you risk being refused entry into these countries.
If you require Yellow Fever Vaccinations, please bring your passport with you when you attend for consult. Please note that Yellow Fever Vaccination cover begins 10 days after your immunisation, so please do not leave this to the last minute.
Our services include:
We will tailor your travel immunisation specific to the area you are traveling to, the activities that you plan to do, how long you are intending to travel for and also your medical history. This means you only get the immunisations you really need.
This includes advice such as malaria prophylaxis, prevention and management of traveller’s diarrhoea, advice specific to the activities you are planning including diving medicine and high mountain altitude illness preventions.
Our service goes beyond your travel to cover for medical issues arised from traveling.
Travel Doctors @ Teneriffe have doctors who are trained in SPUM approved courses to conduct diving medicals and discuss diving related illness. Our aim is not only to ensure that there are no medical conditions that are incompatible with scuba diving during your comprehensive assessment but also to ensure that you take the precautions and preparations to have a safe and enjoyable dive experience.
We can offer discounts to groups including school trips, family trips, sporting group travels or business overseas travel.
It is illegal to carry PBS medicines out of Australia unless it is for your personal use or the use of someone travelling with you. There are also restrictions on the type of medications that you are able to carry through customs. If you are planning to take PBS medicines overseas for your own personal use, please inform our doctors so we can supply a certification of the medicines you are taking.
