Our travel clinic provides care to our patients who are traveling internationally. In general, we follow the travel recommendations and guidelines as provided by the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), which provides specific recommendations for each travel destination. It is encouraged that all families travelling internationally consider visiting a travel clinic ideally 1-2 months prior to departure. At this visit, you will obtain needed vaccinations, secure prescriptions for needed medications such as anti-malarials and antibiotics, and learn about health safety and protection while travelling.
At our travel clinic we address the following topics for your family to get you ready for your trip:
- Prescription medications to treat traveler’s diarrhea, malaria and motion sickness
- Immunizations as dictated by your destination, health status, age and the details of your itinerary
- Travel safety issues such as protection from mosquitoes and sunburns and the importance of making copies of critical documents such as passports, driver’s licenses and credit cards in case of theft
