Travel Medicine

Dr Duc Tran, Dr Simon Wilding, Dr Ben Teoh and Dr Zeeshan Arain are available to provide pre and post travel advice.

Our Doctors will take into account your travel itinerary, style of accommodation, activities while travelling, past medical history, allergies and a range of other factors, and recommend the appropriate and necessary vaccinations and/or medications required for your trip. A consultation is necessary in order to determine your individual needs. Email and phone advice cannot be provided.

Our Doctors will provide individual medical advice on international health risks on a location by location basis, provide a full range of vaccinations on site, as well as assess malaria risk and advise on strategies to prevent other insect-borne diseases. 

Midtown Medical Clinic is a Department of Health approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.

Please allow 30-45 minutes for your consultation and please bring with you:

  • Your travel itinerary
  • Vaccinations records
  • Details of any medication you are regularly or intermittently taking

Please note that if you are travelling for long periods and through multiple countries it is often necessary to have more than one consultation.

Depending on the complexity and length of your travel consultation the fee will vary between $95.00 and $180.00, in addition to vaccination costs. 

Most travel vaccinations and medications are available for purchase through Midtown Medical Clinic. These include Yellow Fever vaccines and travel diarrhoea kits and official World Health Authority Vaccination Booklets.
