New Zealanders love to travel, and expect to enjoy their overseas trip! Staying healthy is a vital part of that enjoyment and your doctor and practice nurse want to help with that.

Please Note:

1) Due to heavy demand for routine consultations our travel doctor may not be able to see you for travel consultations, which includes recommending vaccines if you leave this part of your trip organisation to the last moment. To ensure that you can get a travel consultation please book your appointment as soon as you know your travel dates. Vaccinations can then be planned in advance for you, which simplifies the process for you and for us.

2) If your travel consultation is with in a month of your departure please be aware that you may not have enough time for all recommended vaccinations.

Doctor Craig Pelvin at Dunedin North Medical Centre is an authorised Yellow Fever vaccinator.

World Health Organisation guidelines recommend that travellers visit their health professional 6-8 weeks prior to departure. This allows time to properly consider any possible health risks associated with the places they are visiting, the activities planned, or their underlying health. It also allows the necessary time for vaccination schedules to be completed as some vaccines require multiple doses at set intervals to give protection.

Please find more details about some significant health challenges for travellers on related Dunedin North Medical Centre webpages.

Your doctor and practice nurse work together to plan vaccinations, medications and advise on other travel related issues such as your travel first aid kit. In the first instance please book a half hour Travel Consultation appointment with your doctor.

Before attending the Travel Consultation please print off and complete the Travel Medical Questionaire.

PDF Travel Medical Questionnaire

Please be sure to bring it with you to the consultation. Hard copies of the Travel Medical Questionnaire can be obtained from Dunedin North Medical Centre Reception.

Please Note: Travel vaccines are to be paid for when ordered.
