Travel Health Appointments

About Appointments

No matter where your destination is or what type of trip you are taking, there are benefits to discussing your trip with our team of pharmacists and nurses knowledgeable in travel health. At your appointment, you will receive personalized education, risk evaluation and recommendations designed to keep you safe and healthy on your trip.

    Common topics at the appointment include:

  • Methods to prevent and/or treat traveller’s diarrhea
  • Evaluating which vaccines are required and/or recommended for your trip
  • Determining risk of malaria and if antimalarial medications are required
  • Answering any specific questions you might have

The initial evaluation takes approximately 15-20 minutes.  Any vaccines can be administered immediately afterwards or can be scheduled to be done at another time if preferred. A prescription for any medications can be supplied at the appointment as well.

When should I book my appointment?

The ideal time to book your appointment is between 4 and 8 weeks prior to travel.  Having the appointment this far in advance give us time to schedule any series of vaccines needed prior to travel.
