On the other hand, not all countries are equal when it comes to vaccination schedules and dosages.

Like most major urban centres, Toronto can be a highly susceptible place when it comes to contagious outbreaks and wide-spread epidemics. Although Toronto’s medical and disease-prevention specialists are among the best in the world, it’s always best to check with the World Health Organization Website when traveling to any new city or country.
Smog can sometimes be a problem in Toronto’s downtown sector, on days when there is high traffic concentration and low winds. If you are concerned with the smog levels in your part of the city, consult the Air Quality Index of your area before heading outdoors.
Spring time in Toronto means beautiful flowers and lush green spaces…but it can also mean allergies. If you are susceptible to pollen allergies or hay-fever, it’s best to consult a doctor around the months of April or May, especially if it will be your first spring in the city.
