Welcome to Kingston Travel Vaccination Clinic
We recognize the challenges we all face with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and are doing our part to help slow the spread of the virus.
For this reason, we are rescheduling current appointments and new appointments will be scheduled for a later date.
Please contact us if you have any further questions or concerns at (613) 507-8317 or via the form on our contact us page.
What do we do?
We are a team of professional travel health experts, led by Dr. Greg Baran, a member of the International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM), with certification in Travel Health.
Based on your itinerary, we provide tailored health advice and recommendations for vaccinations and medications for your upcoming trip.
Our up-to-the-minute notices allow us to provide you with the most accurate information. We can help identify which vaccines are routine, which are recommended, and which are required for your upcoming trip.
Our full-service travel clinic carries a complete range of travel vaccinations and medications to help protect you against illnesses such as Hepatitis A and B, traveler’s diarrhea, typhoid, and rabies.
We are also a designated Yellow Fever Vaccination Centre.
When should I book an appointment?
Ideally, an appointment should be booked 4-6 weeks prior to departure as some vaccines require time to be fully effective. However, if you’ve booked a last minute trip, there are options for last-minute travelers.
If you believe you may need a Yellow Fever vaccine, contact us as soon as possible. The availability of this vaccine is limited due to a global shortage.
What about data security?
The confidentiality of your health information should be at the top of your priority list – as it is ours. This is why we have a unique, customized system that keeps your information safe.
All information shared with us is kept confidential. It is not sold or viewed by third parties for any purpose. This means you can focus on your trip, and not on who has been viewing your health information.
There is no single schedule for the administration of immunizing agents to travellers. Each schedule must be personalized according to the individual traveller’s immunization history, the countries to be visited, the type and duration of travel, and the amount of time available before departure.
It is important to remember that the most frequent health problems faced by international travellers are not preventable by vaccines. It is also important to remember that immunization is not a substitute for careful selection and handling of food and water.
A health care provider or travel medicine clinic should be consulted 2 to 3 months in advance of travel in order to allow sufficient time for optimal immunization schedules to be completed. Government funded vaccines (example Tetanus and Polio) are available without charge with a valid health card.
