Travel Health

Everyone wants their travel experiences to be life-changing—in a good way. Before you leave on a trip, it’s important to plan ahead so that you can relax and enjoy yourself while away. Our Pharmasave pharmacists can provide advice about travel essentials to help you stay healthy and happy while away from home. A travel consultation will include:

  • Vaccination and medication recommendations to prevent and treat travel-related illnesses.
  • Providing personalized advice on how to travel with your medications and/or medical devices.
  • Ensuring you have enough prescription medication in case of unexpected travel delays.
  • Online access to prescription information with an eCare@Pharmasave account.
  • Recommendations for specific health concerns while traveling such as pregnancy, diabetes, and heart disease.
  • Suggesting travel products and what to take in a first aid kit.
  • Advice about compression stockings, such as Sigvaris, for long flights.

Travel vaccines vary by destination and some must be given 4 to 6 weeks before travel to be effective. To make sure that any vaccinations that you or your family need are done on time, remember to plan ahead.

Vaccines are great for preventing many communicable diseases. But there are some problems that you can’t avoid just by getting a shot. For what vaccines won’t protect you from, visit our Pharmasave blog post here.
