Our Services

  • Travel Vaccination

    Travel clinics are staffed with specialists in travel health. They have current information on which vaccines are required or recommended for people travelling to various destinations as well as information on the most up-to-date medications for travellers. Even if you’ve had vaccinations when you’ve travelled before, you will still benefit from a visit to a travel clinic, as the recommendations may have changed or you may need a “booster” for a vaccine you already have been given.

    Travellers should visit their doctor or a travel clinic at least 6 to 8 weeks before departure. This will give time for the vaccines to take effect and to ensure enough time between doses, as some vaccines are given in multiple doses.

    What vaccines are available?

    Childhood and routine vaccinations are covered in most public health insurance plans. You will have to pay for additional vaccinations directly or through your private health insurance. Double-check with your doctor or pharmacist whether you have to pay for a vaccination.

    Regardless of how long a person has been smoking or using other forms of tobacco, your Pharmasave pharmacist can help you become tobacco free, improving your quality of life and increasing positive health outcomes.
