The virus is incredibly painful and can lead to nerve destruction and can even increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, as well as other serious illnesses.

Bottled water, filters, chemicals, boiling, UV lights - there are many options for accessing clean drinking water while travelling. But are all methods equally as effective? The answer is no! Below we will review the pros and cons of several options for clean water and disinfection methods
Bottle water is the convenient go-to for most travellers. It is usually cheap and easy to come by. However, in some places it may not be much better than tap water. It is important to ensure that it is properly sealed. It is also important to consider the environmental impact of the plastic bottles as most developing countries do not recycle.

"Thank you for the information and amazing service yesterday. We really appreciate it all."
"I would just like to comment on my experience at Travel Safe Clinic - Kitsilano. I booked an appointment for a routine screening required by my nursing school and was pleasantly surprised when I arrived and started speaking with the nurse. She organized all of my required vaccinations, not just the one I originally went for, and within two quick appointments I had everything that I needed for my clinical placements.
Penny, the RN, was very helpful and knowledgeable, and made sure that I had everything that I would need for school. It was so easy and exactly what I needed. All of the staff I interacted with at the Kitsilano clinic were very friendly!"
"Thanks very much for your quick response and great feedback about Yellow Fever, Penny! "
Travelsafe is great. I am going on a trip to South America, went in to see about what shots and medications I may need for the trip. I am an experienced traveller, Penny was very helpful informing of all the possible risks involved with the areas I will be travelling to. I was extremely pleased with friendly service and left feeling well prepared for the trip ahead.
Thank you for all your advice and information yesterday. It really put me at ease for my upcoming trip. I was starting to fret a bit, but now feel well informed to take on the bugs.
This place is AWESOME! Helped me out in a timely matter.
Penny went above and beyond to make the impossible happen
for me. Can't recommend them enough!
I am writing to express my appreciation for the excellent service and very complete information on health risks and precautions for my upcoming trips to South America and Africa. I was most impressed that my medical history was considered and a possible drug interaction was avoided by switching to a different malaria prophylaxis. Pros and cons were discussed for the various vaccinations that were either required or optional and the advice I received set my mind at ease.
Penny Gleave was extremely knowledgeable and also provided informative handouts that will be useful to have on hand during my travels. Penny is a caring professional and has a passion for her work. It was a pleasure to be counselled by her.
As a travel professional I will definitely be recommending with total confidence the TravelSafe Clinic to my clients.
