Our travel clinic is operated by Karen Church. Aikenhead's PharmaChoice provides a full service pre-travel clinic including pre-travel consultations, prescribing and administration of travel and publicly funded vaccines and prescribing of travel related prescriptions including antimalarials and treatment for travelers diarrhea. The clinic is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
To book a consultation please fill out the form below (1 form for each person travelling) and submit directly online, ideally 2-3 months before your travels but we take last minute appointments as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Karen.
At the appointment, a pharmacist with an education in travel health will review and provide a written assessment of travel health recommendations and provide a prescription for vaccinations and medications recommended or required for the itinerary.
Assessment - $45 (Family traveling to the same destination - $60)
This includes the cost of administration of vaccines but does not include the cost of vaccines or medications. Depending on the itinerary, the consultation typically lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
Administration of Vaccines:
Vaccine administration is provided by a pharmacist trained in the administration of vaccines.
You may be required to wait at Aikenhead's Drug Store for approximately 30 minutes after receiving a vaccine.
Initial vaccine administration is covered in the assessment cost. Booster vaccine appointments will have a $15 charge.
