What is it?
Travel vaccinations are vaccines that protect against the serious diseases you may encounter when travelling overseas. Overseas travel can expose you to serious infectious diseases that are not common in Australia. Pregnant women, babies, young children, the elderly and people with a weak immune system have an increased risk of infection. Disease risks vary between countries. Some countries experience new disease outbreaks occasionally. It’s important to see your GP to discuss your travel plans and any vaccines you may need. Your GP can help you ensure that all children and family members are up to date with their immunisations. Aim to see your GP around 12 weeks before you leave Australia.
Talk to your GP about the COVID-19 vaccine and your eligibility.
