Travel Health Consultation for Travel Vaccinations
“What travel shots do I need to go to Brazil, (India, Haiti, China, Ghana, Botswana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Peru, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Thailand, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey, etc)?”
This is the most common question we hear when travellers are preparing for their trip and we have your answers.
No matter where you are travelling, you should know that you will be exposed to certain organisms that could make you severely ill; perhaps even kill you. As a new or experienced international traveller you should be educated about the environment you’ll be visiting. Ideally, you should schedule your appointment with a Passport Health Travel Medicine Specialist 4-6 weeks prior to your departure date. However, we will always accommodate last minute travellers.
From the dangers of sunburn at high altitude and parasitic infections; to vaccine preventable diseases and foods to avoid; our Travel Medicine Specialists will give you all the tools you need to be informed and protected on your international trip.
During your travel health consultation our travel medicine specialists will:
- Assess your health history & individual needs based on your itinerary.
- Provide you with the latest information on health risks, required & recommended immunizations, and safety precautions & security tips. All information is summarized in a personalized, bound briefing booklet.
- Discuss precautionary measures for dietary and recreational activities.
- Administer and prescribe immunizations and medications.
- All services can also be provided on-site.
Our consultations typically last about 45 minutes and include a comprehensive itinerary and specific topics about your travels. Our Travel Medicine Specialists will discuss recommendations (from the CDC, WHO and other sources) and requirements based on your destinations, activities, time of year, altitude and medical history. Our consultation rooms are private and comfortable. You can usually schedule an appointment on short notice and we will do our best to accommodate you after hours.
