Travel-Bug Vaccination Clinic is Adelaide's answer to your overseas or international travel health concerns. We have a travel doctor, a Nurse Practitioner and other trained staff who specialise in travel medicine. We have Australia's 1st Travel Health Nurse Practitioner consulting at our clinic, and we believe this is the way of the future given current government cutbacks. Travel immunisation advice is our speciality, and we are the only purely travel clinic in South Australia!

Attention: Small medical clinics, such as the Travel-Bug, are not equipped to handle Ebola cases. If you think you may have Ebola, please call 000 for an ambulance and wait for them - do not visit a walk-in clinic.
The Ebola outbreak is spreading rapidly in West Africa at approximately 5000 deaths. Our specialists keep up to date and will be able to provide you with any new information as it comes to hand. You do
NOT need to worry unless you are travelling to a country that is affected. Normal hygiene measures are recommended for all international destinations and this disease highlights the reason for this. Go to the Disease Outbreak page for more information.
If you are travelling to Africa, there is no Ebola vaccine, but you may be required to have a Yellow Fever vaccine. We keep this in stock and can let you know if it's required. Zambia has special rules which are complex and will help you with this.
Yellow Fever Vaccination Available Here!
Going away? Thailand or Peru, Africa or Nepal, staying healthy requires you to be a smart traveller. You may also need a Yellow Fever vaccination by law. Apart from vaccines, there are many other important issues to consider. Malaria, mosquitoes, altitude sickness, travel kits, bali belly and the like. Even knowing which foods are safe is very important.
Here at the Travel-Bug Vaccination Clinic we provide friendly prompt travel health services to enable all travellers to venture to the destination of their choice with the information, vaccinations and the medications they require. In particular, we are able to provide valid documents for use in international travel (yellow fever certificate, meningitis) and up to date malaria information and medication, a range of travel kits for various levels of adventure travel and other items to prevent illness abroad.
