From 2024 the government has implemented stronger controls on the importation, manufacture and supply of vapes.

From 1 January 2024, the importation of all disposable vapes is banned. This means that patients cannot purchase any disposable vapes online from overseas, even if they have a prescription.

March 2024 saw tighter importation controls, including the importation and manufacture of non-therapeutic vapes banned in Australia.

Doctors at McKinley have undertaken recent training to become an Authorised Prescriber through the TGA.

You will require an appointment with your GP to prescribe the vape. This is a private script and your doctor will work with you to gradually reduce the need smoke / vape.

You can make an appointment online via our website. Just click the ‘BOOK ONLINE’ at the top of this page.
