Travel health 101
The best way to avoid health problems is to get your travel immunizations, medicines and other items before you leave.
You'll want to carry the health items you can't easily get at your destination. You could include your prescriptions and over-the-counter medications in your kit.
Plan ahead to get the recommended travel vaccines and medications before leaving for your trip. Some vaccines, like the one for yellow fever, require time to develop immunity.
Sometimes, things come up when you travel. You and your travel companions may consider travel health insurance if your insurance doesn't cover medical care abroad. Also, you could give copies of travel documents to someone at home.
It depends on where you’re traveling and what you’ll do there. Schedule a Travel Health Consultation and we’ll help you get the necessary travel vaccines and medications before your trip.
Coverage varies by provider. Regardless of the destination, all travelers should be current on routine vaccinations, typically covered by insurance.
Some commonly prescribed and over-the-counter medicines can be illegal in other countries. Check with the embassy or consulate in the country you’ll be visiting to see if your medicines are permitted.
