Resources and Tips

If you are planning to travel, then it is better to take certain precautions than feel sorry later on. At  Northern British Columbia Travel Health and Vaccination Clinic (NBCTHVC), we are here to make sure you receive proper immunization before travelling abroad. Here are some useful tips to travel safely:

  • Schedule a pre-travel health assessment from a certified travel health clinic

  • Get a travel health insurance

  • Carry enough supplies of your regular medication along with prescriptions

  • Consume only bottled or purified water and avoid ice cubes

  • Don’t forget to drink plenty of liquids to stay hydrated at all times

  • It’s better to consume food that is recently cooked and served piping hot

  • Eat fruits and vegetables that are freshly peeled or cooked

  • Don’t forget to wash your hands often, and keep a sanitizer handy

  • To protect yourself against mosquito bites, use repellents containing at least 30% DEET

  • Avoid animal contact and seek medical advice if you are bitten or scratched by one

  • Avoid swimming or wading into fresh water and always wear shoes or sandals while walking on the beach

  • It’s better to use sunblock with a minimum SPF of 15 and wearing a hat can help

  • Use a condom to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases while travelling

  • Never flash valuables and avoid going out at night
