The secret not to get sick during the holidays

(EN) Falling sick while on vacation is never pleasant. You can waste time, money and precious vacation days. If you are planning a trip abroad, there are several things you can do to help keep you and your family healthy. The secret not to get sick during the holidays

Here are some tips from the Public Health Agency of Canada.


Consult a healthcare professional.

At least six weeks before your departure, consult your doctor or go to a travel health clinic. Check your family’s immunization history to make sure each traveler has received all of the recommended and booster vaccines. Learn about additional immunization options, preventative medications, and other precautions you can take to reduce the risk of illness during your trip.


Always be alert with food and water.

Boil food, cook it, peel it or avoid it! Wash your hands frequently and before you eat or prepare food, or use an alcohol-based disinfectant when soap and water are not available. Eat foods that are well cooked and served hot, especially when it comes to meat and seafood. Drink water only if it has been boiled, disinfected, or purchased in a sealed bottle.


Take steps to avoid insect bites.

Cover up in pale clothes, loose pants and long-sleeved shirts made of well-woven materials. Use insect repellent on exposed skin during the day or at night. Sleep in completely enclosed areas or surrounded by mosquito nets, and use mosquito nets to protect young children in playpens and strollers.



Don’t forget people with special health needs.

Children, seniors and pregnant women all have unique health needs during travel, as they are more likely to have an immune system that is still developing or weakened. You may need to take extra precautions to protect their health
