Wherever you are planning to travel
please visit the Travel Medicine Centre before you leave to make sure your required and recommended vaccinations are up to date.
Dr. Scappatura will be away from January 29 to February 5
Our physician Dr. Philip Scappatura, has over 25 years experience doing travel medicine fulltime.
Yellow fever is the only vaccine mandatory for travel to some countries. All other vaccines are only recommended (some more than others)
You seldom need all the vaccines listed for a country, we will explain your risks, how you avoid the diseases and you choose which vaccines are appropriate for your individual situation.
Check out our reasonable vaccine prices, we do not have huge markups like some clinics
We do not charge full price for fractional doses of yellow fever.
No injection or needle fees just the visit fees.

Yellow fever vaccine Shortage again
We are giving Full doses of Yellow Fever Vaccine again temporarily (till April 29)
We will start giving fractional doses when supply runs low again
April 30 we will start giving fractional doses
When supply is low we will be giving Yellow fever vaccine fractional doses once a week, morning one week, afternoon the next.
We will be charging fractional prices for those fractional doses (see next page and service charges)
When it is in limited availability we can only give Yellow fever vaccine to those going to an area with real yellow fever risk (according to WHO and CDC maps) which is greater than their risk from the vaccine (see yellow fever vaccine info)
if you have a contraindication we will give you an exemption certificate stating that contraindication. If not we will give you an exemption certificate saying the risk of the vaccine is greater than the benefit and that there is a vaccine shortage.
Contraindications are egg allergy, pregnancy, drugs and diseases that can suppress your immune system (such as recent cancer treatment , steroid, imuran, leukenia HIV organ transplant etc).
(Yellow fever certificate should only be required if coming from an infected area)
Yellow fever vaccine gives you lifetime immunity and the international health regulations are changing to say you only need on in your lifetime.
Enjoy a fresh cup of coffee or tea while you fill in your chart in the waiting room.
We use the K-cup system for fresh coffee .
