You’ve anticipated and planned your dream vacation. Now that trip of a lifetime to a foreign country is only a few months away. You deserve it.
World travel is an eye opening, enriching experience. Unfortunately, we all know someone that has had a vacation ruined by sickness. Don’t let this be you.
Many people forget to plan for their health care needs while tending to all the other planning details a vacation requires. Sights to see, hotels to stay in and meals to enjoy, are more fun to plan for than healthcare. You need to enjoy good health to enjoy your holiday so consider health planning like the foundation that must be built.
IDA Heart Pharmacy services include Victoria Travel Clinic at our Fairfield Road location. We are the only pharmacy certified to deliver this service in Victoria. This means that we have current information, through a large consortium of healthcare professionals, to assist you with things like immunization and vaccination requirements (including yellow fever) and a host of other health needs, no matter where you are travelling to.
Before you come in and see us research and familiarize yourself with your destination. Read up on current events, know what temperatures to expect, what the altitude and humidity levels are and what kind of insect activity there might be. See what you can learn about local, reliable healthcare.
Once you’ve done your research and received your itinerary call us at the Victoria Travel Clinic (250-595-5997) to set up an appointment. We’ll review your itinerary together and make sure that all conditions are planned for. We’ll review your prescription and non-prescription medications and any other health care needs specific to your destination. We’ve got some great travel kits that we think you will find useful.
We wish you a happy and healthy holiday. Enjoy yourself!
