Get Vaccinated For Your Trip Abroad
If you are planning a trip overseas or across the border, it is important to have a medical professional review your vaccination history. Vaccinations in the United States are recommended to patients based on the diseases a person has a moderate to high chance of developing inside the country. Other countries contain diseases that are not often seen in America, which is why most people are not vaccinated for them.
Travel medicine is a relatively new field focused on preventive care and disease treatment for patients traveling abroad. Whether you’re studying abroad or just taking a short vacation on distant shores, it is strongly recommended you receive updated vaccinations.
What Vaccinations Will I Need?
Recommended travel vaccinations vary depending on where you are traveling. we encourage you to visit the CDC’s Travelers’ Health web site to see what diseases may be common in the country or region you will be visiting and learn what you need to do to protect your health before, during, and after travel.
Be sure to mention if you plan on traveling to multiple countries during your travels— the more places you go, the more vaccinations you may need.
Some common travel vaccinations include:
- Yellow fever
- Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
A physician may also recommend certain medications to take with you for conditions that cannot be prevented through vaccination. Be sure to discuss all the potential risks to your health abroad with a member of our knowledgeable team.
