Travel health

Before setting off on your overseas trip it is important to get accurate advice on how to remain healthy whilst you are away. You may also be required to have proof of certain vaccinations before you will be allowed to enter some countries. Organising your travel health needs is complex and involves much more than just getting a few vaccinations. We recommend that you get your travel health organised at least 6 weeks prior to departing.

We are able to provide detailed travel health advice.  Our nurses are trained vaccinators and we can administer the common vaccinations including: Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Diptheria, Tetanus, Pertussis, Typhoid, Polio, Influenza, MMR, Meningitis and Rabies vaccine. Our doctors can prescribe malaria prevention and travel medications where necessary.

We are not a specialist travel clinic and we do not provide Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis, or TB (tuberculosis) vaccinations.

A pre travel questionnaire will need to be completed for each person.  Please download the form and once completed return it to reception@cmed.co.nz

Please note that a deposit of $50 is required to be paid at this point

This charge covers the time required for the nurse to complete the pre-travel assessment. This will normally take 2-3 working days.

Once your travel recommendations have been confirmed and the deposit has been received we will call you to make your 45 minute travel consultation appointment.

Failure to attend your appointment will forfeit the deposit.

Payment for your travel consultation and any vaccines is required on the day.

Should there be any concerns regarding your medical history or the vaccinations you require you may be asked to make a doctor’s appointment. A normal consultation fee would apply in this case.
