Travelling is a way for us to discover the world, experience new cultures, or just enjoy some much needed rest and relaxation. Whether you are planning a family vacation in Mexico, an adventurous safari in Kenya, or visiting friends and relatives in Asia, it is important to understand the potential travel health risks and what preventative measures can be taken to ensure the health and safety of you and your family while travelling. Of the many millions of residents who travel each year, between 20-70% will report a travel related illness. A travel consultation with our pharmacist, certified in travel health by the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM), can help prepare you and your family for a successful and healthy trip.
During the travel consultation we will look at the traveler’s anticipated itinerary in order to determine the required and recommended vaccinations specific to each individual traveler. The appropriate vaccinations are administered during the appointment and the patient is also provided with a prescription for any additional medication that is determined to be necessary. Our travel health expert will also provide the traveler with education on the prevention and treatment of other travel-related diseases.
Meeting with our travel health pharmacists will ensure that you are provided with current up-to-date information about the potential travel-related health risks around the world, and also with the most current vaccination and treatment guidelines for travel related illness.
Appointments are scheduled as 1 hour sessions and can be done as an individual, couple or family. Whenever possible, appointments should be booked a 4-6 weeks prior to travel.
