What to Expect at your Appointments

WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR APPOINTMENT

Consult with our travel health pharmacist:
when you arrive for your appointment, we will go over your medical history, vaccine history, any medications being taken and any medical conditions.

Precautions and education:
our travel pharmacist will go over maps and international resources specific for your itinerary to provide you with education and a written plan to take home. Food and water precautions, mosquito protection, and diseases like yellow fever, malaria, hepatitis, dengue, typhoid, mers co-v, etc. as well as travellers’ diarrhea prevention and treatment will be discussed.

Getting vaccinated:
we will administer the vaccines required and/or recommended for your trip. Our pharmacists have extensive experience in providing vaccines in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

Medications:
we will provide any medications you need for travel such as travellers’ diarrhea, malaria, altitude illness and others as well as education on their use while away. Our pharmacists are also able to provide other non-travel related prescription medications that may be needed.

Immunization record:
you will be given a written record with all the vaccines you received from our clinic as well as certificates for vaccines required for entry to certain countries ex. Yellow fever, meningitis, polio.

Payment:
after billing through any eligible vaccines to available insurance** payment will be accepted and you will be provided with official prescription receipts for all products and services. Our team works hard to keep your costs down by providing only those vaccines which we feel are necessary for your health and protection.

**For those clients with direct bill drug insurance plans.
