Make sure you are up to date on all recommended vaccinations before traveling abroad.
International travel can be a fun and enriching experience, but it can also pose health risks. The type of risks you might face during travel depend on a number of things including:
- Where you are traveling.
- Your activities while traveling.
- The state of your health.
- Your vaccination history.
Many vaccine-preventable diseases that have become rare in the United States, such as measles and pertussis, are still common in other parts of the world. Certain activities, such as attending crowded events, can increase the spread of infectious disease. No matter where you plan to go, you should get recommended vaccines to lower your chances for getting and spreading disease.
Plan Ahead to Vaccinate
Talk with a Curemed Pharmacy and Travel Clinic health care professional about needed vaccines when you begin to plan international travel..
· See us at least a month before any international travel. You may need this much time to complete a vaccine series, and your body needs time to build up immunity.
· Ask about routine vaccines. In addition to getting any recommended travel vaccines, make sure you and your family are up to date on all routine vaccines such as MMR vaccine, before you travel.
