What happens during a consultation?

The first 15 minutes: A travel medicine physician will provide recommendations based on your travel destination(s), your type of travel (e.g. backpacking, staying in 5 star hotels, etc.), and your medical history. 

The second part:  A registered nurse will provide travel vaccination(s) and general travel health information.

How can I prepare for my consultation?

Please bring your vaccination history (immunization records) to your appointment and a list of the places you will be visiting, for how long and types of travel.

Is this service covered by MSP?

Please be aware that travel medicine services are not covered by the Medical Services Plan (MSP). 

Travel medicine consultation fees are $30 for SFU students and $40 for staff and faculty.  Most vaccines are not covered by MSP; there are only a few extended health insurance plans that cover non-MSP vaccines.  To find out what your coverage is, please contact your extended benefits insurer.  Please be prepared to pay for your travel medicine consultation and for the vaccine(s) you receive, directly after your visit.  HCS accepts Visa, MasterCard, debit, cash, and cheques.
