Keeping you safe and healthy while travelling

Our goal is to help you and your family decrease the risk of serious illness while travelling.

We offer a number of services to the international traveler including the following:

  • Customized travel advice
  • Immunizations (hepatitis, typhoid, rabies, meningitis, yellow fever)
  • First aid and self-treatment advice
  • Food and water safety tips
  • Insect precautions
  • Injury prevention advice
  • Precautions for time zone / altitude changes
  • Tuberculin testing

Our clinicians and staff are highly experienced in administering immunizations. You will receive the highest standard of care and provided with the most current health information.

Most immunizations must be given in advance of travel to be effective. For this reason, we recommend that consultation for travel medicine be booked at least 2-3 months in advance.

Travel health is currently only available at our Lifemark Bayers Road clinic in Halifax, Nova Scotia. We are also one of the few licensed yellow fever centres in Nova Scotia.
