travel vaccination and medication

We understand how exciting travel can be and how important it is that you are well prepared and properly immunised prior to starting your holiday.

Our doctors can provide comprehensive travel consultations and can advise you what vaccinations are required for all destinations. It is a one-stop-shop for all travel vaccination and medication requirements.

Whatever your destination, we can assist in preparing you for your safe and healthy travel and ensuring your travel health is well managed by providing the most up-to-date international health advice and medical services. Please ensure that you make an appointment with your doctor well in advance as some vaccinations are required to be given over a specific time frame (e.g. 3 or 6 months) and completed in a certain time-frame before departure.

If you're having a suspicious mole removed, the doctor should consider removing about 2 millimeters of healthy skin from around the mole. Doing so could avoid the need for a second surgery if the mole turns out to be cancerous, according to a new report.

"Although the vast majority of suspicious-looking skin moles do not turn out to be cancerous melanomas, once a decision has been made to remove a mole, there should be a clearer standard margin," said senior study investigator Dr. David Polsky. He is a dermatologist and professor of dermatologic oncology at NYU Langone Health in New York City.

"Our study shows that a 'one and done' approach with a clearly defined, slightly larger margin is safer and more effective in completely removing suspicious moles with a single procedure than the current non-standardized approach," Polsky said in an NYU Langone news release.

Please book an appointment with one of our experienced doctors in Sydney CBD for a skin/mole check with Sydney Premier Medical & Health Centre on 02 8964 8677.
