Travel Medicine & Immunizations

International travel continues to grow each year 

  • Travelers range in age from very young infants to elderly and travel for a variety of reasons including: tourism & adventure, business, study abroad & research, mission work, or response to international disasters.
  • The risk of becoming ill during travel depends on many factors including, but not limited to:  region of world visited, traveler’s age & health status, immunization history, length of trip, & diversity of planned activities. 
  • For people planning to travel out of the United States, particularly to developing countries such as Africa, Asia, & Latin America, it is important to talk to a physician who has expert knowledge of travel medicine as far in advance of your travel as possible. 
  • Travel medicine physicians are up to date on international health regulations as well as which vaccines or medications would be needed in preparation of your trip.
