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.

Yellow Fever in Brazil + Angola

SARS  (now more than a decade ago) taught us how an illness on the other side of the world can affect us. Well we are once again experiencing the impact of a disease Yellow Fever in Brazil and Angola; because of the outbreaks of Yellow Fever in these countries, the World Health organization has directed large quantifies of Yellow Fever vaccine to the health authorities in those countries  to help deal with the outbreak. Travel clinics in other parts of the world are being severely limited in their supply of vaccine. Health Canada is working on advising us of temporary solutions to assist our travellers when travelling to countries where Yellow Fever is a concern.

Travel Clinic Fun!

Working in the Huronia Travel Clinic here in Barrie is so much fun! We get to meet the most interesting folks. Whether it’s large groups needing their consultations and vaccinations, or indivual families or couples traveling abroad. Today I saw a retired couple who are driving the Pan American highway all the way from Alaska to the tip of South America. How cool is that?

We had some very interesting discussions about what vaccines they might need including Yellow Fever (which fortunately they already had and Malaria, they are in and out of Malaria areas and of course all of the other mosquito born illnesses (Dengue, Zika etc.) that are endemic in many of the countries they are driving through. A very exciting trip!
