Our mission is to help you to  be aware of potential exposure to vaccine preventable diseases at your destination. A pre-travel consultation is an excellent way to make informed decisions concerning your health and safety before you travel. Destination specific information concerning vaccinations and medications that are available to protect you during travel will be given at that time.

Schedule Your Appointment Now

Travel medicine is not a walk-in service.  You must schedule an appointment.  Ideally, you should schedule your appointment three to six months before your international trip.  Call 613-841-7009 to schedule your travel medicine appointment today. Alternatively, if you have a Health Myself account, you can request an appointment online. You do not have to be a rostered patient at FFHC to receive travel medicine services.

  • $40 for a second person (same visit); and
