We opened the doors of the Jema International Travel Clinic in 2001 to help people of all ages in St. John’s and across Newfoundland and Labrador access convenient travel advice from health professionals.
During her 40 years of experience, owner and head nurse Margot Mayo worked as a nurse-in-charge in the Arctic and then a Communicable Disease Coordinator here in her home province.
When regulations changed in the early 2000’s and travel services were no longer offered by public health, Margot took matters into her own hands and started JEMA with her husband.
They started with travel advice and vaccinations, but quickly expanded to provide other vaccines such as pneumonia and flu.
Within two years, they realized occupational health was also lacking in the area, so they began getting involved in TB testing and similar services to overcome this issue.
Over the past 20 years, the clinic has grown to a full range of travel and occupational health services. We offer everything you need for travel to any part of the world and for employment in any field.
Our team of nurses, health experts, and friendly admin staff are ready to welcome you. Visit our clinic at 736 Water Street or arrange for a visit to your office or home for convenient, accessible vaccines and care.
