Keep your vaccinations up to date when travelling abroad


--------- SCRIPT --------- 

Reporter Script:

When planning a trip, it’s easy to get caught up with travel arrangements, but it’s important to think about your health as well. Infectious diseases related to travel are serious and can cause lifelong illnesses, or even death.

David Windjack, a pharmacist at Real Canadian Superstore, explains:

Spokesperson Quote:

“Vaccinations are one of the easiest ways to prevent disease. A visit to your local pharmacist can provide you with country-specific information on immunizations and how to stay healthy while abroad. In all provinces but Quebec, vaccinations can be administered by the pharmacist, so you have more time for planning your trip.”

Reporter Script:

Some travel vaccinations take a few weeks to take effect, so it’s best to prepare early. For travellers heading to Mexico or the Caribbean, the government may recommend preventative vaccinations against Hepatitis A and B, Typhoid, and other diseases. Talk to your local pharmacist for advice on how to protect your health during your vacation and after you return home.
