Travel Consultations

Reduce Your Risk

If you are travelling outside of Canada or the United States, we offer travel consultations for many common travel destinations such as: Mexico, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, and more!

Consultations for regular patients at our pharmacy and for common destinations are free, otherwise our travel consultation fee is $25. 
 

This service includes, but is NOT limited to: ​

  • Vaccine review:

    • Travel vaccines such as hepatitis A and B, and typhoid fever, and traveler's diarrhea

    • Routine vaccines such as annual influenza, pneumococcal, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), shingles, and more

    • Note: vaccines that are not covered by Alberta Health require a fee of $20 per injection. Unfortunately this fee can not be direct billed to your insurance by the pharmacy, but may be reimbursed if you are to manually submit it to your insurance yourself

  • Travel prescriptions: you may benefit from having antibiotics on hand in case of traveler's diarrhea, medications for malaria prevention, and more

  • Assessment for other medications for minor ailments such as upset stomach, diarrhea, mild pain, and more

It is beneficial to see a health professional 1 to 2 months before leaving for your trip to ensure you are adequately vaccinated and prepared.

Please bring the following items to the pharmacy when coming in for your travel consultation:

  • List of your current medications (if not a regular patient at our pharmacy)

  • Your vaccination history

  • Your travel itinerary including dates you are abroad

Every travel consultation is unique as no two patients are the same and recommendations may differ depending on your destination!
