At Palliser Medical & Travel Clinic in Lethbridge, we are committed to ensuring that our patients find the information they need to make intelligent decisions. Learn more below, or you can contact us directly if you still find yourself with questions.
Q: Why do I need a travel consultation?
We use your itinerary of travel and your mode of travel to determine what precautions you need to focus on as well as determine what travel vaccines you may need. Travel vaccines are individualized based on the area of travel, age and medical history. Geographical factors may also be relevant, as well as what vaccines you have had in the past.
Q: Can I get my vaccines covered?
Alberta Health Services does not cover travel vaccines. Your insurance company may cover your travel vaccines but you will need to submit your invoice. We do not directly bill.
Q: Can I get my travel vaccine without getting a consultation?
We do not give vaccines without looking at all of your itinerary and health history.
Q: Can I get my boosters to complete my vaccination series?
Yes, we can give the boosters, provided you have the record of what part of the series you have completed.
Q: When should I book my appointment?
We suggest that you book your appointment as soon as you can, but at least 6 weeks ahead. Some vaccines can be given just prior to travel, but may not offer its maximum protection.
