Travel Medicine and Vaccines

Travel Medicine and Vaccines

If you are planning an international trip, you will need to take specific steps to achieve optimal levels of protection against vaccine-preventable diseases. You can visit with one of our health-care providers who can provide pre-travel country-specific health advice.

Many factors will determine what immunizations, prescriptions and illness preparation you will need to consider. Adventurous travelers that venture out to remote areas of developing countries will require a more thorough evaluation of needed immunizations and treatments for preventable diseases, which can require a series of injections. Recommendations for immunization are developed by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and are published on the Internet at
