With more and more people leaving the U.S. for business and pleasure trips, medical concerns while traveling are becoming increasingly complicated.
Anyone planning a trip overseas can benefit from seeing one of our travel medicine specialists. An appointment in our travel clinic is especially important if you are traveling to underdeveloped or developing countries where there’s a higher risk of contracting malaria and other serious illnesses.
We recommend scheduling an appointment at least six weeks before you depart. Some vaccines require several weeks for immunity to develop, while others require more than one dose of vaccine for full protection. If your trip is to an underdeveloped or developing country, you may need to schedule an appointment up to two months in advance to receive a full set of immunizations.
