Routine Immunizations

You have booked your air plane ticket and car rental, bought your travel health insurance but have you checked if your routine immunizations are up to date? Travel is a great time to review your immunizations such as tetanus and measles. While here in Ontario we have high immunization coverage rates for disease like measles, many countries do not allow travel to such places when you are not protected with vaccines and can lead to what is called imported cases. Since 2015 there have been 196 cases of measles: most cases were in not up to date with measles vaccine and most were related to travel. Be safe! Book an appointment today to review your immunizations such as tetanus and measles.
