We will give you all the appropriate information for an informed choice about personal travel health risks to be made.
When to book an appointment:
We recommend you make an appointment with one of our Clinics at least 6- 8 weeks before travel.
Some travel vaccinations require a number of doses, and it is good to start them well before you travel. This is also a good time to check out any medications that you may need to prevent malaria.
It is never too late to get updates or advice for your travel. We are here to help you get as much information as we can for a safe and healthy trip overseas.
How to prepare for your visit:
Before specific advice and recommendations can be given to you, we will need you to bring your detailed itinerary to your appointment. It helps us to know:
Exactly where you are going
How long you are going to be there
Whether you will be travelling in rural or urban areas
The kind of accommodation you plan to live in
Any activities you plan to do
If you have not finalised your itinerary, having a consultation with us is still a wise option as it will provide you with an awareness of risks in your destination areas.
Please also bring with you:
Knowledge of any previous vaccinations. Past vaccination booklet or plunket book
Knowledge of your medical conditions, medications and allergies
What happens during the consultation:
When you arrive, we will give you a form to fill out providing us with all the necessary details we need to know.
You will then be seen by one of our Travel Health Specialists who will go through your itinerary and medical history and consult you from there.
We will provide you with the necessary information pamphlets to take away and once advised, you decide which Travel vaccinations (if any) you wish to go ahead with.
We can provide you with a vaccination record booklet
It’s not just about Vaccinations:
Your pre-travel comprehensive consultation will include advice on:
Risks and latest health alert updates for the destination areas
Safety and Security issues
Food and vector borne diseases
In flight safety
Travel related first aid advice
Medical kit information
Altitude sickness (AMS)
Children’s and women’s health issues where appropriate
How much time to allow:
Our full comprehensive pre travel consultation goes for approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on how many there are of you.
After any vaccination, we recommend you remain in the clinic for 20 minutes
Some of our clinics provide various consultation options focusing on particular vaccinations or antimalarials. Please contact your nearest Worldwise clinic for more information.
If you are nowhere near our clinics, we have a number of medical associations who are members of our health professional online service. This means that they are updated with current travel health information and can advise you accordingly. They may not be registered to administer all travel vaccinations however (eg:Yellow Fever), so it’s good to check before going to them.
Why we are unable to tell you what you need over the phone
As you can see, it is more involved than just a list of vaccinations. Many other aspects are assessed including a full revision of your itinerary and individual medical history to determine the ‘travel health and safety issues’ relating to you.
The people answering the phones are our fantastic receptionists and medico legally, are not able to offer any medical advice. What they CAN do is let you know about how our clinic’s work and book an appointment for you
We are privately owned clinics and not government funded – Our Travel Health Specialists spend their day with clients and are unavailable to provide a phone consultation service.
