Travel Consultations

Whether you’re taking a short weekend getaway or traveling to a remote corner of the world, it is important you take certain steps to ensure your trip is as enjoyable as possible. Often the standards of safety, cleanliness, and medical care are not the same in foreign countries as here in Canada, increasing your risk for travel-related illnesses and accidents. If you are currently planning a trip, be sure to book a travel consultation at The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy. We will ensure that you not only receive the necessary vaccine(s) but also some helpful health-related advice to prevent common travel ailments.

 

Pharmacy based travel consultations benefit our clients in the following ways:

 

  • Pharmacists are one of the most accessible health professional groups. We are available for extended hours and are in close contact with our patients.

  • As your medication experts, and given pharmacists’ ability to prescribe certain medications, we will work with you to ensure all your pre-travel prescription and over-the-counter medication needs are met.

 

 

At the Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy we subscribe to Travax®, which is a comprehensive medical resource, tailored to international travelers. It combines information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as many other resources to help us:

 

  • Determine country specific vaccine requirements

  • Generate individualized itinerary reports

  • Keep up-to-date with new information

  • Encourage safe and healthy travel

My wife and I have been customers of the CO-OP Medicine Shoppe since they opened in 2002. We have found the pharmacists and staff exceedingly helpful with advice on some of the strange drug concoctions some of us have to take these days, as well as the common every day sniffles, aches and pains. They always seem to treat us like members of the family and their service is fast and courteous and always with a smile! We even stop to say "Hello" when we are not using their services! A welcome addition to our lives.
