Travellers

Are you planning to travel outside of Canada? No travel plan is complete without a visit to the Timiskaming Health Unit.

You may require immunizations, depending on your travel destination, the length of your stay and whether or not your routine immunizations are up-to-date. Since it can take several weeks for an immunization to protect you against a disease, you should consult our travel health clinic or your family physician 6 to 8 weeks before your trip in order to allow enough time for the vaccines or immunizing agent to take effect.

The actual immunizations you may require will vary according to your age, health, and any pre-existing medical conditions, as well as the nature of your travel, whether you will be staying in city hotels or travelling in remote rural areas. A travel health clinic or family physician should assess your individual circumstances and provide any vaccines that may be required for your trip.

The Timiskaming Health Unit provides travel consultation to the general public free of charge. Please call to book an appointment 6-8 weeks prior to your departure date.
