When traveling to some destinations, either on vacation or for work, one should first consult a Travel Medicine Specialist.
During this consultation one can obtain information on preventive or curative measures to be taken into consideration before, during and after the trip, depending on the chosen destination:
When should I make an appointment?
This appointment should be booked 4 to 8 weeks before departure date, so that there is enough time for any treatment or vaccinations that might be needed.
What documents should I bring with me to the appointment?
Traveller consultations are important for all healthy travellers, but are especially important for pregnant women, children, the elderly or people with chronic illnesses.
The traveller consultation is indicated for workers allocated in another country for short or long periods, requiring an assessment, prevention and health education of risks in the country of origin.
