When you are travelling out of the country, you may be at risk for vaccine-preventable illnesses. Visiting a travel clinic like ours before you travel gives you a chance to:
- review your immunization history
- make sure you are up-to-date according to your provincial/territorial immunization program
- discuss any health concerns you may have related to your trip
- assess your needs based on where you plan to travel and what you plan to do
If you are planning on travelling, you can make an appointment with Nancy, our pharmacist who runs our travel clinic. Heads up – we will ask for the following information when you call:
- Where are you going?
- When are you leaving?
- How long will you be gone for?
Your appointment with Nancy will last about one hour.

Seasonal Flu Shots
Did you know that in order for the influenza vaccine to be effective, you need to get immunized every year? A new vaccine is made each year to protect against the viruses most likely to cause illness that year.
Quick facts about Influenza:
- Influenza is an infection of the nose, throat and lungs that is caused by a virus.
- It is spread through the air; when someone with the disease coughs, sneezes, or even speaks, the virus gets in to the air. You can get it by breathing in these particles or by touching something that has been coughed or sneezed on by someone who is sick
Who is at the highest risk?
- Pregnant women
- People 65 years and older
- Children between 6 months and 5 years
- People with chronic health problems
How can influenza be prevented?
- Wash your hands with soap and water
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
