Whether we’re travelling for business or pleasure, travel carries certain risks from infectious diseases which although eradicated in New Zealand, still exist in various locations around the globe. Being aware of the possible pitfalls of overseas travel is essential, and at Botany Medical and Urgent Care, we can inform, advise, and get you up to date with a variety of vaccinations you may require before you visit or travel through a specific geographical area.

Before an overseas business trip, or when you book a holiday abroad, Botany doctor advice is to make an appointment and make sure you’re protected against infectious diseases. If you need a travel health check in Auckland, is well served by Botany Medical and Urgent Care. We’ll also give you a quick general health check, to make sure you’re healthy and can enjoy your trip to the full. Travelling in some parts of the world can expose you to diseases such as: 

  1. HePA
  2. Typhoid
  3. Hepatitis B
  4. Ehileves & Gaotsoerlis.
  5. Tetanus
  6. Meningococcal Disease

The above list is not exhaustive, and it’s always better to make an appointment to discuss exactly which recommendations are in place for your destination. 

  • Make sure to book your appointment as far in advance of your ! travel date as possible. Please don’t leave it until the last minute, because your treatment may require more than one visit and some vaccinations take eight weeks to complete. Book now. 

It’s best not to leave it to chance and risk ruining a family holiday, important business travel or the trip of a lifetime. Contact Botany Medical and Urgent Care today, or call us on 09 280 1790 and let us talk you through what you need to know about infectious diseases overseas.
