Before you leave Canada, take time to learn about your destination, the health risks in the country and make sure it is safe to travel there. 

Your risk of becoming sick or injured while abroad depends on a number of factors, including; age, immunization status, current state of health and pre existing medical conditions; destination, length of stay, climate and season, type of accommodation, itinerary and activities; and local conditions

Based on these factors, plan a visit to The Public Health International Travel Clinic 6 weeks before you leave to have your needs assessed. Some vaccines require more than one dose and some can’t be given at the same time as others. 

Consult

You can expect to have a consult with a specially trained Public Health Nurse. Your consultation will consist of travel health education and a risk assessment which provides the basis for travel vaccine recommendations. The pre travel consultation also presents an opportunity to update routine vaccines. The clinic fee and the length of your visit depend on the area to which you are travelling. You can anticipate your visit with us will be from one to two hours in length. It is important to bring any vaccine records that you may have or request them from your doctor in advance.
