Travelling over the holidays? Stay well!

Travelling soon? Book an appointment with your doctor 6–8 weeks before departure to discuss general travel medical advice. We have most vaccines onsite at UniSA Health Medical Clinic.
A visit to the UniSA Health Medical Clinic to see one of our doctors qualified in travel medicine is an important travel preparation step to take before boarding your plane or cruise ship.

Travel Medicine is more than just vaccines; pre-trip planning can help reduce the risk of travel related illness. Each traveller, trip, and time is unique, and it is not just exotic disease that you need to be prepared for. Our experienced doctors can offer expert advice about the health risks at your destination.

International students should also be aware that your natural immunity to many pathogens may have decreased while you were studying in Adelaide. A check up before heading home can keep you well while you visit family and make sure you are well and ready to commence study next semester.
