New Travel Medicine Clinic
Coming July 9 — Stay healthy while you travel!
The brand new Travel Medicine Clinic at the David Braley Health Sciences Centre offers travelers consults so they can get health advice and receive vaccinations before their adventures abroad. Dr Ashleigh McCullagh-Cheung, MB BCh BAO, is up-to-date, having recently attended the Review Course in Travel Medicine by the International Society of Travel Medicine in April 2019.
The Clinic is located at the McMaster Downtown Ambulatory Care Centre, on the 4th floor at the David Braley Health Sciences Centre, 100 Main Street West, Hamilton. Dr. McCullagh-Cheung recommends that you are seen 4-6 weeks before your travel. Appointments will be offered in person on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Consults will take approximately 40 minutes. In the near future, Dr. McCullagh-Cheung plans to expand clinic offerings to include online appointments with weekend and evening availability.
After booking your appointment, you will be emailed a pre-travel questionnaire. There will be questions about your health, travel plans and vaccination history. This should be completed online and submitted 48 hours prior to your appointment.
OHIP does not fund travel medicine, but some health insurance benefit plans will reimburse some or all of the cost. The consult fee is $85 per person, with a group discount if multiple people are on the same trip. There is a $25 vaccine administration fee which includes a vaccine record. For vaccine prices, please refer to the Vaccine Price List.
The clinic accepts Debit, Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Receipts for services will be provided so you can submit claims to health insurance benefit plans.
Please note that there is currently a shortage of yellow fever vaccine; if this is required for your travels, Dr. McCullagh-Cheung will make arrangements for you to be vaccinated.
Please call the clinic at 905-525-9140 ext. 24881 or email the clinic at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your appointment today.
