Huronia Travel Clinic provides individualized consultations and services to provide pre-travel advice that will help you to plan a healthy and enjoyable trip. Let our experts advise you on any health concerns with your chosen destination or what travel vaccines and prescriptions are recommended for your trip.
The consultation is a detailed review of your trip plans. Each traveller is unique in terms of health and travel plans: the consult is not a one destination fits all process. Huronia travel clinic staff will provide you with current and individualized travel requirements and recommendations for your trip.
Travel vaccines are required or recommended, based upon presence of local
disease and outbreaks, natural disasters and civil unrest. Health, age and past
immunizations are also important factors we consider in the consultation. We
will help you to prioritize which vaccines are most important.
There is currently a national shortage of some common travel vaccines. The vaccines affected by the shortage currently include Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Rabies. All of these vaccines are recommended vaccines and not necessarily required vaccines for travel. Information in our consultation will be provided about other methods of prevention to help reduce risk of disease. We regret the inconvenience this manufacturer shortage may cause.
After reviewing your itinerary, Huronia Travel Clinic will provide you with information on current health issues and what prescriptions or medications you might need. A health history is taken to help determine if a prescription for medication might be needed to prevent for example malaria, travellers diarrhea or altitude illness.

"I had a great experience at the clinic. Dr. Gall really took his time to give me thorough advice about how to prepare for a safe trip, and he made sure to check my prior medical history. I needed to get a vaccination, and the nurse was very good at administering the needle. I also appreciated being able to pay right in the examination room - that was a first! It seems like a busy office, but the wait time was minimal. Keep up the great work!"
"Dr. Stanford was amazing. His consultation was kind, and comprehensive. He actively listened to my trip details and took a lot of time to go over every detail of what to expect and how to handle situations that I might experience on the trip. I appreciated his commitment to ensuring I understood everything . His wife, the nurse who administered the immunizations, was personable, professional and competent. This was the best visit to a doctor that I have ever experienced. I did not have to wait long as his patients are not overbooked. Highly recommend this clinic."
"We have used the services of the Huronia Travel Clinic for the past 7 years as part of our International Mission Trips program at our school. We have taken over 200 students on trips to Kenya, Ghana, Nicaragua, Tanzania and India and Huronia Travel Clinic has been our medical consultants for all of these experiences. They are thorough, patient and very accommodating and have earned the trust of not only our travelers, but their parents."
"In the past ten years I have taken hundreds of students, both high school and university, on service trips to Africa, Ecuador and India. All of my students have used Huronia Travel Clinic for their pre-trip immunization, general health care and travel advice. 100% of the participants have arrived back home both happy and healthy. I can't help but think how hard it is to improve on 100%. Using Huronia Travel Clinic gives me one less thing to worry about."
"I visited Huronia Travel Clinic on 3 occasions for trips to Kenya and Rwanda, Bhutan and Tanzania. I received clear, comprehensive and specific advice in a friendly manner from Dr Stanford. Appropriate prescription and non-prescription medications kept me safe and healthy while away. The clinic also reviewed my vaccination records and provided required booster shots. I highly recommend the services that Huronia Travel Clinic offers!"
