Travel Clinic

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. Travel can expose you and your family to some hazards:

  • Vector-borne diseases like mosquitos which can transmit Malaria, Yellow fever, Zika, etc
  • Waterborne illnesses from swimming, wading or drinking contaminated water
  • Sand and soil contaminants
  • Environmental hazards; altitude sickness, sunburns or heat stroke

Depending on your existing health conditions, (pregnant, child, senior, diabetic, or immunocompromised), you could be at higher risk.

At Gaetz Pharmasave, our travel-specialized pharmacist can provide advice about travel essentials to help you stay healthy and happy while away from home, including:

  • A review of your destinations, itinerary, and activities
  • Provide you with updates on outbreaks, endemic illnesses, hazards, and how to prevent exposure or reduce your risk
  • Vaccination and medication recommendations to prevent and treat travel-related illness
  • Providing personalized advice on how to travel with your medications and/or medical devices
  • Providing advice about compression stockings for traveling for long periods
