Services and Pricing
The Markham Travel Clinic offers all the necessary vaccination for travel as well as practical measures to enjoy a safe trip.
Unfortunately, travel vaccines are not provided by the Government. Private Insurance may refund travellers partially or fully for these vaccines. The Markham Travel Clinic will issue a proper receipt with the vaccine D.I.N numbers for claiming the charges through your private Insurance. Please use the DIN number provided under each vaccine if you want to check whether the vaccine is covered under your Insurance plan. If your Insurance does not cover the cost of the vaccine, you can use the receipt as proof of your medical expenses when filing your tax return.
CONSULTATION FEE - OHIP does not cover the doctor's visit for Travel advice. The consultation charge covers the professional fee for advice given after a thorough medical and travel history, review of past immunization as well as advice regarding the essential vaccine needed for the trip. Administration of the vaccines as well as prescriptions and other preventative advice given during the visit are all part of the consultation fee.
The consultation fee is $60.00 per person for each trip.
Families of 3 or more travellers are charged only $150.00.
There is no charge for return visits, needed to complete the immunization series. (e.g Twinrix needs 3 visits).
