Our travel clinic is operated on Wednesdays by Karen Church, a pharmacist with a Certificate in Travel Health from the International Society of Travel Medicine. The medical director is Dr.D.G.Kemp. Aikenhead's PharmaChoice provides a full service pre-travel clinic including pre-travel consultations, prescribing and administration of travel and publicly funded vaccines and prescribing of travel related prescriptions including antimalarials and treatment for travelers diarrhea.
To consent to the medical directive and book a consultation please fill out the form below (1 form for each person travelling) and submit directly online, ideally 2-3 months before your travels but we take last minute appointments as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Karen.
At the appointment, a pharmacist with a Certificate in Travel Health will review and provide a written assessment of travel health recommendations and provide a prescription for vaccinations and medications recommended or required for the itinerary.
Assessment - $65 (Family traveling to the same destination - $100)
This includes the cost of administration of vaccines but does not include the cost of vaccines or medications. Depending on the itinerary, the consultation typically lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
Administration of Vaccines:
Vaccine administration is provided by a pharmacist trained in the administration of vaccines.
You may be required to wait at Aikenhead's Drug Store for approximately 15 minutes after receiving a vaccine.
