TRAVEL CONSULTATION OVERVIEW
In a travel consultation, we only need about 1 hour of your time to focus on keeping you as healthy as possible during your travel.
To allow us to give you the most complete information, we need you to book your consultation with us at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to your travel.
You will also need to complete the travel questionnaire that will be emailed to you prior to your consult.
We request that you bring us a record of all your previous immunizations. Your immunization record can printed off from your Alberta Health's MyHealth Records online tool (requires registration).
We need as much medical information on your health history as possible including the medications you are on as well as any allergies that you might have.
A detailed travel itinerary is needed to help us determine your risks such as malaria, yellow fever and altitude sickness.
If you are pregnant or travelling with children we will request that you bring your pregnancy record and the children's immunization records.
We are a designated ‘yellow fever centre’. Yellow fever vaccinations must be completed at least 10 days ahead of your travel.
We will give you a schedule of any booster vaccinations that you may need during or after your travel.
We carry all vaccines on site and will give you a record of all the vaccines you receive.
We will give you any prescriptions you need for self-treatment of traveller's diarrhea, altitude sickness and malaria.
