TRAVEL
No matter where you’re headed, a visit to your pharmacist will help you get prepared to enjoy every minute of your trip. Take your pharmacist’s advice to protect your health, anytime and anywhere.

 

TRAVEL HEALTH TIPS

During your pre-travel consultation, your pharmacist will tell you which medications to bring with you to relieve minor health symptoms, such as motion sickness, earaches, jet lag or digestive problems. These precautions will help you stay as healthy as possible during your trip so that you can enjoy every minute. Your pharmacist can also give you enough of your prescription medication to last your entire trip and can provide you with an updated list of your prescriptions.

Some medications are subject to special restrictions for transport or to get through customs. Check with your pharmacist for more information.

 

TRAVEL HEALTH TIPS

Planning a trip? Depending on where you’re going, you may need to get recommended vaccines or take medications with you for specific health problems. To travel with peace of mind, see your pharmacist, who is your passport to health!

Depending on your travel plans, destination and health condition, your pharmacist can advise you about any recommended vaccines you should get. At some pharmacies, a nurse is available to administer vaccines against diseases such as hepatitis A and B, typhoid fever, and meningitis.

Your pharmacist can also prescribe medications to treat traveler’s diarrhea or prevent malaria or acute mountain sickness (or “altitude sickness”). This service is generally offered by appointment.

TRAVEL HEALTH KIT

See your pharmacist to put together a first aid kit that will protect you from both minor ailments and serious health threats during your trip.
