Vaccines protect travellers from getting diseases abroad that may not normally be found in Canada. What vaccines do you need before your trip?
You should be up to date on your publicly funded immunizations. We recommend downloading the free CANImmunize app, a digital vaccination record for Canadians. Please ensure you have submitted your immunization record to our team before your appointment.
Depending on your destination, you may be at risk for a number of vaccine-preventable illnesses. Our practitioners will review your itinerary, medical history, planned activities, and other health concerns to determine which (if any) destination-specific vaccines and/or medications are required or recommended for you. Examples of vaccine-preventable travel-related diseases are:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Meningococcal disease
- Yellow Fever*
- Japanese Encephalitis
*There is currently a shortage of the yellow fever vaccine in Canada, so we may need to arrange an in-person visit for you at your nearest centre.
