Are You Planning a Trip?

If you are planning to travel outside of Canada you may require immunizations to protect you during your travels.

Travel immunizations are not covered by OHIP. Do to the specialized nature of travel immunizations and advice, WCHC cannot provide these services. If you require advice it is strongly suggested that you book an appointment at a travel clinic. For a complete list of local clinics visit the Region of Waterloo Public Health website:
