Cobourg – We’ve all seen the television commercials for travel-related diarrhea, hepatitis prevention and skin protection from the sun and that is only the start of rather serious complications that can arise when travelling. Vax2Go was recently changed its name in place of the former Northumberland Travel Health Centre in an effort to call focus to the importance of placing your health at the forefront when making travel plans.

Dr. Steve Connor, medical director, has been practicing medicine for 30 years. He is a graduate of Dalhousie University School of Medicine in Halifax, N.S. He also holds accreditation in Tropical Medicine from Prince Leopold Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium. Steve has lived and worked in Africa and India as well as traveled extensively for pleasure. 

Heather Connor is a Nurse/Clinic manager and has a Bachelor of Nursing from Dalhousie University and accreditation in Travel Medicine from the International Society of Travel Medicine. She has extensive knowledge of vaccines, which she has gained, with over 25 years of experience and has extensive travel experience.

Together the team is a tour-de-force specializing in preparing individuals and groups for healthy travel. “We both love to travel”, Heather says, “and are committed to helping others reduce risks so that they might experience safe and healthy travel”.

Vax2Go has recently moved to newly renovated offices in the Fleming Building on Elgin Street, Cobourg. On Wednesdays the clinic moves to Lindsay while special clinics can be held for larger industry and school groups.

Other members of our team are our administrative assistants; Deanna Crosty and Bonnie Riley, and Carol Austin who also is a nurse.
