Travellers Health & Vaccination Centre

Our Travellers Health Centre is designed as a 'ONE STOP SHOP' for all vaccinations and travel health advice. We are a member of the Worldwise Group, New Zealand's Authority on Travel Health.

While Travelling can be fun and exciting,  new destinations can also bring new risks. Because sanitation and food and water quality are variable throughout the world, diseases such as traveller's diarrhoea are common. Our aim is to make preparing for travel simple and easy, and we want you to enjoy every moment of your trip, without wasting precious time coping with preventable illness. 

It is important you have the best advice around keeping yourself safe and healthy. With the right vaccinations and health advice, you can relax and enjoy your trip knowing that you're well prepared.

Are you travelling overseas and in need of a COVID swab and Fit to Travel assessment?

We can help. Fees apply.

To request your COVID swab/Fit to Fly assessment, please print and complete this Fit to Fly Patient Information form and email it to fittofly@moorhousemedical.co.nz. We will then contact you to arrange an appointment. 

Before you complete your form, please note:

  • For testing and timing requirements specific to your trip, please check with your airline and the embassy of your destination.
  • It can take up to 48 hours for the laboratory to process your sample. Urgent appointments may be able to be arranged.
  • Please make sure the information you put on your Fit to Fly Patient Information form is the same as what is on your passport.
  • There is a cost for COVID Fit to Fly assessments, starting at $200. 

Once we have received your completed form, we will contact you with your appointment date and time. Please bring your passport with you to your appointment.

When the result of your COVID swab is back from the laboratory, we will send you a copy along with your certificate by email. You will be able to collect the original documents from the Medical Centre.
