Vaccinations before travel are very important because they can help prevent you from contracting certain diseases overseas. You can also check the latest travel advice for your destination which will give you information about the main risks you could face and the best health precautions to take.

Travel and Prescription Medicines

If you regularly take prescription medication you will need to make sure you have enough for your entire trip. Please see your doctor for a letter confirming all the medications you will be taking with you.

Always leave your medication in the original packaging so it is clearly labelled with your name and the dosage instructions. Split your medication between your carry on and hold luggage if possible in case your bags go missing.

Glebe Medical Travel Health Tips

Here’s some useful tips to help ensure you have a healthy holiday

  • Continue to take your prescription medicines exactly as our doctor has prescribed.
  • Take a small medical kit with you. Headache tables, antacids, antiseptic lotion, cotton wool, band-aids, sunscreen and insect repellent are the basics you should include.
  • New diseases can appear suddenly, like pandemic influenza (H1N1) in 2009. Check the latest travel advice and travel bulletins for your destination before you leave.
