Before You Travel, Visit Our Clinic
If you're travelling outside of North America, it's important to know the risks and to take the proper precautions. At Palliser Medical & Travel Clinic in Lethbridge, we offer a range of services to travellers to keep you safe, and which might even save your life! Contact us today.
We offer a medical risk assessment for your specific travel itinerary. Recommendations on travel vaccines depend on the travel itinerary.
Some vaccinations, such as yellow fever, typhoid and polio may be required for entry into your destination country.
We follow CDC, WHO and PHAC guidelines.
All vaccines are available onsite.
How to Book an Appointment
Please schedule your consultation at least 6 weeks prior to travel.
Call us at 403-381-1013.
A few things will be required for your consult:
An Alberta provincial health care number, date of birth and email address for each traveller
A list of prior vaccinations. If you have received vaccinations in Alberta please login or register to MyHealthRecord (alberta.ca/myhealthrecord) to print off list. If you have received vaccinations anywhere outside of Alberta, you must find a way to obtain proof of vaccinations as we will not have any means to do so.
