Medication in case you get sick
When you're travelling, top-quality medical care isn't always accessible.
We have surveyed travellers, so we KNOW what is likely to happen, and what you are likely to need while you are away. Many travellers are aware of travellers diarrhoea or gastro, but that is not the only thing that can happen while travelling; For example, statistics show that 28% of travellers catch a respiratory tract infection
As with your vaccinations, our Travel Vaccination Clinic tailors the medications we recommend to suit your specific destination, your length of stay and your medical history.
Our travel doctors can help you determine the necessary medication to have on hand in case you get sick. Our staff can supply a zipped Travel Medicine kit bag to make a kit look more 'official' , a letter of authority to carry these medications through customs, and easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions that tell you exactly what to take and when.

As travellers often need to carry prescription medication , you do need to consult a doctor before you can put together an appropriate travellers medical kit. If you cannot get to a Travel Medicine clinic we may be able to work with your doctor to help you get your kit together.
Yellow fever is a serious disease which occurs in Africa and South America. It is transmitted by mosquitoes and can be fatal. Vaccination may be required before visiting parts of Africa and South America.
This is to stop the disease spreading into other countries and to protect the travellers themselves. A vaccination certificate may also be required to enter an infected country or when leaving an infected country and entering the next (non-infected) country.
The vaccination is not available through many family doctors and usually travellers must visit specially approved centres (like us) to have the vaccine. Vaccination certificates are valid 10 days after the injection, and lasts for 10 years.

For a good night's sleep, and to keep away that most dangerous of animals - the mosquito….we have both single and double-sized compact bed nets. The nets are World Health Organisation accredited Long Lasting Insecticide Nets (LLIN). More information can be found on the manufacturer's website - single net or double net.
Single and double compact nets retail for $35-$45.
20ml bottle of Permethrin for, when diluted, the treatment of bed-nets, sheets and clothing. Mosquitoes and other insects are killed when they land on material impregnated with the substance.
Wearing treated items will significantly decrease the number of bites you get. Treated bed nets have been shown to be four times more effective than untreated nets.
When you wear treated clothes, you still need to use repellent on exposed skin.
This is very useful product for keeping insects off fabrics - especially good for long sleeved shirts.
Treated clothes should not be ironed. Most people will not experience any ill effects from wearing treated clothes, although there are rare cases of persons developing a slight skin rash if clothing is worn close to the skin. It is most useful to treat outer clothes, eg an overshirt. This means you can readily wash the undershirt, and do not need to wash the overshirt as often so the permethrin impregnation will last longer. Once treated, the clothes remain effective until at least the fourth wash.
Pack contains enough to treat a mosquito net up to 20sqm, a bed sheet up to 10sqm, or several items of clothing such as t-shirts or sweatshirts.
Dr Deb's Permethrin Soaks are $17.60 each plus postage.
