Planning to go abroad?
People who are planning to travel abroad are advised to take certain precautions to make sure that they have a pleasant trip and return safely.
Before departing, travellers should see a nurse or a doctor in a travel health clinic for a complete vaccination based on the their travel plans and associated risks. It's also important that previous vaccinations be updated.
Most travel health clinic services are not covered by the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec. However, many private insurance companies reimburse all or part of the cost of vaccinations.
