We talked about this in December, but with Spring Break just around the corner, we wanted to remind you of the importance of travel medicine!
We suggest checking the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for health travel notices and health alerts (https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices). The medical professionals at UNI are here to work with you to make sure you are properly protected against the illnesses that you may encounter when leaving the United States.
Our travel medicine doctors will review your medical history and your itinerary to ensure that you receive the proper vaccinations, medications and up-to-date information that will help you stay healthy and safe. Our consultations are thorough and we will strive to make sure you are protected against diseases such as diphtheria, rabies, tetanus, MMR, polio, shingles or meningitis.
Our experienced practitioners can also help make your trip more enjoyable by dispensing useful advice to help you combat common maladies such as sea-sickness or motion sickness, sleep problems, gastrointestinal problems and insect bites.
Below you will find a list of the travel vaccinations available at UNI:
- Hep A and Hep B
- Diptheria Tetanus Pertusis
- Oral & Injectables for Typhoid
- Malaria Medications
- Tetanus Diptheria

A little forethought and some friendly advice from the travel medicine experts at UNI Urgent Care can make for smoother sailing and a more enjoyable trip!
