Our doctors have formal qualifications in travel medicine and expertise in Yellow Fever Vaccine. We are affiliated with Travel Medical Alliance / Dr Deb’s Travel Clinics Australia wide.

The cost is $95 for the yellow fever vaccine, plus $85 -$155 for the doctor's consultation (some of this consultation fee can be claimed from Medicare if you are not travelling for work). The doctor will discuss the Yellow Fever vaccine and the other travel health issues that are relevant, so you will be well prepared for your journey.

Yellow Fever Vaccination is usually needed for travel to these countries.

Vaccination is valid for life but takes 10 days to be effective. The vaccine causes side effects in some persons, so get it as early as possible before you leave. There may be some occasions in the future that a booster is required (for example – unavoidable travel to an area with a current known outbreak). You should always check with us prior to any future travel.

Mild side effects of Yellow Fever Vaccine include getting a sore arm, feeling tired, headache, muscle aches or fever for 24 hours starting 3-9 days after vaccination.

Very rarely persons vaccinated can develop more severe side effects of Yellow Fever Vaccine, which may include anaphylaxis ( severe allergy) and swelling of the brain and other organs. It is critically important to get the vaccine from doctors who have experience with the vaccine.

Once vaccinated, you will be issued with the international vaccination record book at no further cost – This document is also ‘yellow’ in colour and is to be carried with your passport for official Immigration inspection (if asked) at each border including when arriving back into Australia.

Call 08 8948 4333 during business hours to make an appointment.

There is no national register for yellow fever vaccinations, however if you have been to a Travel Medical Alliance or Dr Deb's clinic in the past 30 years and had a yellow fever vaccine but have lost your certificate, for a small charge, we can issue you a new one from the records.
