Health Tips While Travelling
While travelling you must always be mindful of your health. There are several things that you should carry with you while travelling in order to prevent any unwanted situations.
Remember To Always Carry
- Basic First Aid Items
- Your medication
- A card with information that will identify you in case of emergency.
- Proof of insurance coverage
- Immunization record.
Before travelling to another country also remember that there may be health notices that you should know about. Checking the CIC website regularly for health notices before your departure will ensure that you are well aware of what’s going on before you leave.
If you are travelling with special needs be sure that you notify them of any special needs when booking the flight. This way the airline will have time to ensure that your safety and comfort are taken care of during your flight. Check with your doctor before booking a flight to ensure that it is safe for you to travel and for you to go through a metal detector or be hand-wanded.
Please be aware that many countries do not have the resources available to them that you may have in your home country.
All older travellers should be sure to take all their routine vaccines before travelling to another country. Visit your health care provider in order to find out if there are any recommended or required vaccines needed in order to travel.
There are many risks posed to older travellers, be sure to exercise caution while travelling.
Don’t Forget To
- Obtain Travel Insurance
- Pack a travel health kit
- Consult a doctor preferably 6 weeks before you travel
