Travel Health Clinic

The travel health clinic is currently closed. Please contact the Winnipeg Travel Health Clinic at 204-940-8747 to book an appointment there.

If you are planning to travel internationally, you should be aware that conditions in other countries may be very different from those in Canada and may seriously affect your health and personal security. A well-informed traveller is more likely to be a healthy traveller.

Travel Health is a non-insured benefit. Check with your insurance provider to see if your policy covers a portion of the cost. You may require immunization shots for you and your family if you are planning to travel abroad. Contact a travel health clinic, which will assist you with this travel planning. You may even choose to place your name on the Registration of Canadian Abroad registry and investigate the latest conditions in the country you plan to visit by browsing the Travel Health Notices.

At the travel health clinic, clients are advised of the risks associated with their travel destination. Upon completion of an assessment, the travel health nurse will make immunization recommendations, but it’s up to the client to decide which vaccines they’d like to receive. Pre-travel advice is more than just needles and pills. It is an assessment of risks to which the traveller will be exposed.

In assessing risk, the following points are considered:

  • Duration of travel
  • Purpose of trip
  • Style of travel (backpack or five-star hotel)
  • Age
  • Time of year (some infections may be seasonal)
  • Urban vs. rural
  • Medical conditions or medications
  • Destination

There are many vaccines. They can be divided into three categories: a. Routine e.g. Td (Tetanus and Diptheria) b. Required e.g. Yellow Fever c. Recommended e.g. Hepatitis A
