Vaccine Information and Resources
Planning a trip outside Canada? Allow several months to get your Travel Vaccines in order. Start by contacting your health care provider or travel medicine clinic. You should be aware of which immunizations you have had in the past.
Vaccination recommendations can vary depending on medical and immunization history, destination, travel duration and accommodations, and any health conditions such as pregnancy, allergies, asthma, and diabetes. Consult your doctor or a travel vaccine clinic 2 to 3 months in advance of travel to allow enough time to complete your scheduled immunizations.
