Our Doctors here at Hanson Medical Centre will make sure they take into account your travel itinerary, where you are going to stay; activities you will most likely participate in while travelling and a wide range of other factors, and will therefore recommend the appropriate and necessary vaccinations in order to ensure that you are protected and safe when travelling. A consultation is necessary in order to determine your individual needs.
Our Doctors will provide you and your family with information in regards to international health risks regarding the location of your stay and any precautions you should take while travelling. We will provide a wide range of vaccinations at our practice to ensure everything will be taken care of.
