Travel health and other non-publicly-funded vaccines

Travel health and non-publicly funded vaccines are offered by private providers in Northern Health. Many family physicians also provide this service for their patients.

If you are planning to travel outside of Canada, you may require immunizations. The type and schedule will depend on your destination, the length of your stay and whether or not your routine immunizations are up-to-date. Some countries require certain immunizations for entry into that country. Some of these require multiple doses over a period of time.

Northern Health encourages residents with international travel plans to plan well ahead when it comes to immunization requirements for their destinations. Please do your best to contact a provider at least 3 months before your departure date to book an initial appointment to determine your immunization needs for your travel itinerary.
