Travel Advice / Immunisations
Another service offered to you at your GP surgery (primary care practice) is advice and immunisation before you go to another country. While you are likely to have the immunisations needed to live in New Zealand, there may be other injections you need to protect yourself before going for example to Africa or South America. In some places you will need protection from rabies or malaria. Yellow fever vaccinations are only available at approved centres; please click here to view the centres in the Auckland region. Your doctor will be able to tell you what diseases you will need to be protected from in any named country and advise you on other medical matters.
Dr Alastair Borwick is trained in tropical diseases and public health and has worked in a NZ travel medicine clinic. Dr Borwick is gazetted to give Yellow Fever vaccine which is a legal requirement to cross some international borders, mostly in parts of Africa and South America.
