No matter where you go, you can’t escape illness. In fact, forgetting travel medicine, such as pre-travel vaccinations and prescriptions, could make you more than just home sick.

Travel Medicine

Our Travel Medicine specialists will assess your health, provide information about preventing and avoiding disease based on where you’re going and what you’ll be doing, and—if necessary—prescribe medications and administer vaccinations. Political upheaval, economic hardship and warm, wet climates create conditions for the proliferation of serious diseases. If your travel plans include a trip to a tropical location or developing nation, schedule a pre-travel screening if possible three months before going abroad.

Call 382-4900 to schedule an appointment. Bear in mind, travel immunizations often incur out of pocket costs and are not always covered by insurance. Please call your insurance company to determine if you will have to pay for your immunizations.
