Before you do any international traveling, a visit to Global Travel Health can help you learn about the medications, travel health care and/or travel shots you may need to prevent illnesses as you travel abroad. Even if you think your destination is safe, remember that illnesses and disease can, and do, happen. The Global Travel Health staff of nurses and doctors will assess the risks for your particular travel, discuss precautions to avoid those risks, and provide you with the vaccines and prescriptions to help you have a comfortable and safe journey.
Possible risks to consider:
- Illnesses spread by insects or animals (Malaria, Japanese Encephalitis, Yellow Fever, Dengue Fever, Rabies)
- Illnesses caused by contaminated food or water (Hepatitis A, Typhoid)
- Updates on epidemics and political unrest
- Jet Lag
Travel consultations are by appointment only.
