Travel Clinic

Travel Vaccination

Pulse care Travel Clinic specializes in travel vaccinations. Our Pharmacy team will help you understand your personalized vaccine needs for any destination.
As part of your pre-travel consultation, our team will educate you on the travel vaccines or medications available to reduce the risk of contracting an illness on your trip.
With preventative care, we will help you prepare for a healthy and safe trip to any destination.
Receiving travel vaccines before your trip is an important part of the pre-travel routine that is often neglected. At Pulse Care, we aim to educate travellers and to help individuals see the world, safely. We are committed to ensure maximum immunization coverage in all populations, from small children to the elderly.
Recommendations for specific vaccines related to travel will depend on your specific itinerary, duration of travel, what activities you will engage in during travel, and your prior vaccine and health history. Vaccinations against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, poliomyelitis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), rotavirus, human papillomavirus (HPV), and pneumococcal and meningococcal invasive disease are routinely administered, usually in childhood or adolescence. Influenza vaccine is routinely recommended for all people aged ≥6 months, each year. A dose of herpes zoster (shingles) vaccine is recommended for adults aged ≥50 years. If a person does not have a history of adequate protection against these diseases, those immunizations should be completed.  A visit to a Travel clinic for travel-related immunizations should be seen as an opportunity to bring an incompletely vaccinated person up-to-date on his or her routine vaccinations.

Compounding

Learn More

Compounding is the creation of a pharmaceutical preparation—a drug—by a licensed pharmacist to meet the unique needs of an individual patient (either human or animal) when a commercially available drug does not meet those needs. A patient may not be able to tolerate the commercially available drug, the exact preparation needed may not be commercially available, or a patient may require a drug that is currently in shortage or discontinued. At Pulse Care we work with patients and physicians to provide a personal and customized solution to meet all your pharmaceutical needs. We have the ability to customize drug strengths, dosage forms (creams/ointments, tablets/capsules, suppositories, etc.), change flavours, or exclude specific ingredients present in commercially available products that may be allergy-inducing to some patients.

Following are a few examples of a compounding

  • Customize strength or dosage.
  • Flavor a medication (to make it more palatable for a child or a pet).
  • Reformulate the drug to exclude an unwanted, nonessential ingredient, such as lactose, gluten, or a dye to which a patient is allergic.
  • Change the form of the medication for patients who, for example, have difficulty swallowing or experience stomach upset when taking oral medication.

Medication Review & Management

Learn More

A medication therapy review is a one-on-one consultation between a pharmacist and a patient during which the pharmacist collects information about the patient’s health conditions and all of the medications he/she takes – whether prescribed, over the counter, or a natural health product.

At Pulse Care We provide an expert assessment by Doctor of Pharmacy to verify medications, dosage, side effect and potential interactions. It also provides the opportunity to ask questions to better understand medications and the proper way they should be taken, reducing the risk for medication-related problems.

Chronic Disease Management & Education

Smoking Cessation & Tabacco Education

If you’re like many smokers and tobacco users, you know you should quit. But you aren’t sure how to do it. Quitting smoking all at once might work for some people. But you’ll improve your chances of success by getting help from your health care provider and making a plan.

Talk to your pharmacist. All community pharmacists can help you in your goal by listening and providing information and advice about:

  • different smoking cessation medications (both prescription and non-prescription choices)
  • managing nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms
  • dealing with slips and relapses
  • coping with stress
  • general strategies to help you quit
  • finding other support networks and resources to help you quit
