What to expect in your travel appointment clinic

poster by : admin

Congratulations – you booked a flight and left for your next adventure!

Not fast. Before you leave, take a few simple steps to stay healthy on your journey. By taking the time to understand the health risks at your destination, keep the people around you healthy. If you have never been to a travel clinic, this is to be expected.

Before you leave, take a few simple steps to stay healthy on your journey. By taking the time to understand the health risks at your destination, you will also keep the people around you healthy. If you have never been to a travel clinic, this is to be expected.

Before you go to a travel clinic
Make an appointment with your family doctor. Your primary health care provider and pharmacist may be able to take care of all your travel health needs, including vaccinations. If your doctor does not have expertise in travel health or you need a Yellow Fever vaccination, they will refer you to a travel health specialist (for example, Yellow Fever vaccination is only available from a certified travel clinic). You can also book an appointment at a travel clinic if you don’t have a family doctor.

Try to book your travel clinic appointment at least 6 weeks before your trip. In a busy travel clinic, it might take a week or two to get an appointment. It is important to order early because many vaccines come in series and need to be given according to a certain schedule. At present, there is also a shortage of the Yellow Fever vaccine (expected to last until the end of 2019) so it might take longer to get an appointment.

A travel health specialist will provide medical advice, vaccinations, and medicines based on your overall health status and your travel plans. They can help you prioritize vaccines if you are short on time or on a limited budget, give you tips on how to avoid common ailments related to travel, and answer your questions about staying healthy abroad.

Before your travel clinic appointment, be sure to familiarize yourself with the health risks at your destination (our Country Health Advice tool can help). Knowing the risks can help you and your doctor make decisions together about which vaccines and drugs are most suitable for your trip.

What should be brought to your appointment
Bring a record of your immunizations and your detailed itinerary, including travel dates, planned activities, who you are traveling with, and where you are going – the more specific, the better. This is important because the nurse or doctor’s advice will be tailored to your health needs and the places you visit. Make a list of all health conditions and medicines you use.

During your appointment
A nurse or travel doctor will ask detailed questions about your travel plans and your travel plans. Common questions include:

Where are you going? Which city, city or rural area do you plan to visit?
How long have you been traveling?
What is the purpose of your trip? Will you be on vacation, work, study, volunteer, or visit friends and relatives?
What type of accommodation will you live in (such as hotels, hostels, local houses, camping, or on a boat)?
What medicine are you using?
Are you up to date with your routine immunizations?

No matter where you’re traveling, your travel health provider will explain how to choose safe foods and drinks, and how to reduce the risk of Traveller’s Diarrhea and Hepatitis A. The nurse or doctor may give you printed information about other health risks so you can read it at home. They may also recommend travel supplies, like a mosquito bed net if you’re visiting a place with Malaria or Japanese Encephalitis.
