Travelling abroad? Need advice or vaccines? Take a few minutes to ensure you are taking all the necessary precautions.

  • Does your travel destination have any particular advisories or carry risks for your health?
  • Are there any vaccinations you should have to ensure adequate protection?

Ready to visit your country of origin? Pay attention to severe illnesses!

Take care of your health

Travellers who visit their family or friends in their country of origin are exposed to the same risks as the local population.

Natural protection against several serious diseases (including malaria) does not last a lifetime. When you return to your homeland, you may no longer be protected.

If you are travelling to visit your family in Africa, Latin America or Asia, you will be at a very real risk of exposure to one of the many tropical diseases present in these countries, that could make you seriously sick.

Take care of your children's health

Children need additional vaccines when they travel to their parents’ country of origin. A number of tropical diseases are more frequent and more severe in children. In Quebec, almost 1 in 5 cases of malaria and half of typhoid cases occur in young people who have traveled to their parents’home country.

Do not purchase medications abroad

Nearly 2 out of 3 medications purchased in developing countries can be counterfeit or ineffective. Be sure to bring your médications with you.
