Travel Clinic

We are committed to providing business and pleasure travelers with the highest level of service and expertise.

We specialize in providing vaccinations and related medical services to travellers venturing to tropical and developing countries. 

Since 1996 Dr. Chopra and his highly experienced staff have been providing travelers with medical advice and vaccines customized to their destinations, activities and individual health status.  The clinic offers a complete range of vaccinations for international travel as well as comprehensive advice re:  malaria prophylaxis, tropical illness, high risk and special needs travel.   

Look into vaccines 6-12 weeks before you travel

Don't forget, plan ahead. Some vaccines require more than one dose prior to travel. It is recommended that a traveller consult with a travel health clinic or their physician at least 3-4 weeks prior to departure.   However it is never too late to get advice.  Many of the vaccines will still have some benefit even if given shortly before departure.

Budget for them - unfortunately not all vaccines are covered by the government, but a number of private insurance plans may cover them.

  • Yellow Fever
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria
