Our Travel Clinic Pharmacist holds a Certificate in Travel Health™ from the International Society of Travel Medicine.

 

This means that you will receive advice from an experienced travel health professional who has met recognized standards.  We can book your first appointment in person or via secure video if this helps with your schedule. 

The usual process is that we meet first to create the plan and then book everyone at a second appointment administer immunizations.  However for urgent or tight deadlines we can often work with you to provide everything in one appointment.

Our Pharmacist will:

  • Review your trip itinerary and medical history to provide you with a customized written plan.

  • Review your routine adult immunizations and make suggestions if gaps are present.  

  • Provide a detailed, customized written summary of your travel health plan.

  • Help you make sense of your plan based on what might be mandatory vs strongly recommended vs optional.

  • Post any vaccines provided immediately to your electronic health record with a note to your family doctor to keep them in the loop.

  • Provide you with lab requisitions to confirm immunization status if required.
