Travel Prescriptions

We travel for a variety of reasons—business, adventure, relaxation or to lend a helping hand. Whatever it is that drives you to travel, we want you to make the most of your trip without unnecessary illness or injury. Personal assessments are important as not all vaccines recommended are appropriate for everyone. A personal assessment helps you to avoid unnecessary vaccinations which can be costly.

During an appointment, on of our pharmacists will assess your unique health and vaccine history along with your itinerary to determine the best protective measures for you.

QUESTIONS

How soon before traveling should I come in for an appointment?

Book your appointment at least 4-6 weeks before you leave to make sure there is enough time to have all your immunizations. However, short notice appointments are usually available. If you are leaving sooner than 6 weeks, we will provide appropriate immunizations and medications to offer the maximum protection possible.

 

NOTE: Yellow Fever vaccination MUST be completed at least 10 days prior to entry into the country requiring proof of vaccination or you may not be able to enter the country.

Do I have to see my doctor as well?

No. Our pharmacists are APA-certified and can both prescribe and administer all vaccines and medications needed.

How long is a travel consultation?

Be prepared to spend about 60 minutes with a travel consultant. For families or groups, this may be longer depending on how many vaccinations are administered during the appointment.

Why is there a fee for an appointment?

Travel health services are not covered by Alberta Health Care. Our consultants have undergone extensive education and training in the field of travel medicine. Your appointment fee covers the time for your appointment, the preparation ahead of time accessing your health records and preparing your risk assessment as well as providing your vaccines and medications to you.
