Travel health and immunization services

Limited travel advice can be provided through Ridgeview Medical Centre - please advise the staff when booking your appointment if you wish to discuss travel related vaccinations or prescriptions.

PLEASE NOTE: Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan does NOT cover travel related consults, appointments or injections. Payment for these services must be made at the time of your appointment.

Whether you are traveling for leisure, business or the adventure of a lifetime, your health is as important as your tickets and accommodation!

Sick during or after travel?

The physicians at Ridgeview Medical are equipped to treat travellers returning to Canada. Be prepared to tell your doctor which countries you have visited and provide details about any medical attention you received while abroad.

For useful information on vaccines, travel health notices, and country specific advisories, visit the Public Health Agency of Canada's Travel Health site.

Foreign citizens traveling in Canada

Physicians at Ridgeview Medical Centre see non-Canadian citizens on a walk-in basis.

While we normally ask our walk in patients to attend the clinic in person; due to the current pandemic situation, we are temporarily allowing phone bookings and virtual appointments for patients showing symptoms that could be related to COVID-19.  Appointments for unattached patients (walk in) patients are available same-day only, as availability permits.


The base fee for non-Canadians is $125 per appointment, additional fees may apply based on time and complexity. Please note, we do not have the ability to do x-rays or lab work on site, nor can we accept travel insurance. Narcotics will not be prescribed at walk-in appointments.

  • Monday to Thursday:

    No walk-in hours

  • Friday:
    No walk-in hours
  • Saturday:
    10am - 4pm
  • Sundays and Statutory Holidays:
