Travel Medicine

Our Approach to Care

Whether you are going on vacation far from home or traveling internationally on business, it’s important to take care of your health. Our travel medicine services can provide you with information on preventive medication, food safety measures, and country-specific immunizations. Our travel clinics serve those who plan to be in an area with exposure to new and different diseases or illnesses. Providers can give you specific information on what vaccinations you will need. You need time to develop immunity or protection from your vaccine.

Be certain to go to the nearest travel clinic four to six weeks before your trip. Last-minute travelers should consult their doctor about which vaccinations to get.

Travel Medicine Services

Travel medicine deals with the health concerns of travelers. Travelers are offered support, education and vaccinations before leaving home. Travel medicine helps decrease the risk of acquiring an infectious disease abroad. Travel clinics are staffed by infectious disease specialists who make sure that travelers have the education and care they need prior to travel. Contact your local travel clinic if you want to be vaccinated against illnesses from other regions. Your provider may suggest:

  • Vaccinations

  • Education materials
  • Prescriptions for preventive care
