As more people travel to every corner of the world, the need to take health precautions becomes increasingly important. Whether you are traveling for leisure, business or other reason, international travel can pose various risks to you and your family´s health.

Among others, potential health risks associated with travel include:
- Traveler´s Diarrhea
- Hepatitis A & B
- Yellow Fever
Travel medicine advice is an investment in your health and well-being while traveling. A medical consultation should ideally take place at least 6 weeks before your departure and earlier if long-term travel or overseas work is anticipated. If you are leaving for your trip within the next 48 hours, let us know so we can book a next day or same day appointment.
Although it is ideal to see you well in advance of your trip, there are still a number of vaccines and preventive measures that can be provided on short notice and just prior to departure to make your trip a safer and healthier one.
As of July 1, 1998, OHIP no longer covers pre-departure assessments for the sole reason of traveling outside of the country. Travel outside of Canada is considered voluntary, and as such, the patient must cover the cost of assessment and any vaccinations received.
