London Travel Clinic Appointment Information
When should you book a pre-travel assessment?
Ideally, pre-travel assessments should be arranged about a month prior to your departure. Some vaccines require booster doses and all vaccines take at least a few days to become effective. Due to demand and logistics, it may be difficult for us to see you on extremely short notice.
Should infants and children have pre-travel assessments?
Travel immunizations complement regular immunizations and some may be administered to infants as young as six months. Canadian born children are also predisposed to severe disease by tropical infections such as malaria, typhoid fever and gastroenteritis.
What information should I bring?
We need to know the details of your trip including the purpose, duration and exact location within each country. We need to know your medical history including drug allergies, current medications and previous immunizations. Unless you have been seen previously at the London Travel Clinic, we have no information regarding your previous immunizations. Hence, please bring an updated immunization record which may be available at the Public Health Unit of your residence or your family physician.
