Traveling is a wonderful experience, but it requires preparations. To stay healthy away from home, a trip to a travel medicine clinic is as important as insuring your passport and entry visas are in order.
At our clinic, we are familiar with the health concerns in each country you intend to visit:
Furthermore, we keep up with the latest alerts and advisories that are issued by both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
So that medications do not counteract (interact badly with) each other or render each other ineffective, we will be able to integrate required travel medicine regimens with your current medical regimen. A visit to our travel clinic should take place at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to your departure, but even a shorter interval can benefit you.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) makes recommendations for the safety of U.S. travelers on immunizations, medications, insect repellents, and other medical concerns specific to the region of travel. CDC recommendations are often different than country entry requirements, which are imposed by the country, for the safety of their citizens. Current recommendations can be viewed on the CDC website: wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel.
