Bon Voyage! After a lengthy season of feeling cooped up, many people have started travelling to long-awaited (or delayed) destinations. Before you leave, make sure you are ready for your trip.

The best way to prevent getting sick when you travel is to be well informed. Depending on your destination, some immunizations should be considered before and after your trip for maximum safety. Vaccines help protect against serious diseases that you could contract while travelling, such as hepatitis A and B, yellow fever, typhoid and cholera. Make sure to book an appointment several months in advance to ensure you are fully immunised. Book with us every time you travel abroad. All recommendations will be individualized to your needs, destination and itinerary. All vaccines are prescribed and administered at the pharmacy.
It is important for all travellers to be adequately informed before visiting areas where they may encounter concerns such as malaria, altitude sickness, and travellers’ diarrhea. Along with other protective measures, there are prescribed medications that can be used to prevent these. Our pharmacists can assess and prescribe treatment based on your personal itinerary when needed.
Customs, security and border crossing inspection requirements and restrictions are always changing. Depending on your medications, medical devices and special circumstances, you may need to take extra measures to ensure that all your health-related items also join you on your trip. We will help guide you through this process.
Packing a travel health kit helps keep a minor discomfort from becoming a major headache. If you don’t know which over-the-counter medication to choose to relieve your symptoms, don’t be shy to ask your pharmacist! Bringing some basic supplies can save you time and money when you are away from home. Our pharmacists can help you tailor a health and first-aid kit that best matches your travel needs.
Whether you’re going near or far, check out our extensive checklist to ensure you have all you need.
