Summer is here, and for many of us, that means vacations! U.N.I. Urgent Care wants you to enjoy your travels without the added stress of sickness. That’s why we want to make sure you are up to date on all recommended vaccinations before traveling abroad. International travel is fun and exciting but it can also pose health risks. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reminds us that the type of risk you face when traveling may be dependent on where you are traveling, activities while traveling, current state of your health and your vaccination history!
The professionals at U.N.I. Urgent Care can work with you to ensure that every precaution to protect your health is taken before you depart. For international travel, the CDC recommends that you confer with a doctor specializing in travel medicine at least four to six weeks before your departure.
Our travel medicine doctors will review your medical history and your itinerary to confirm 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 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. Travel can be expensive and you don’t want to let a preventable problem ruin your once-in-a-lifetime adventure. A little forethought and some friendly advice from the travel medicine experts at U.N.I. Urgent Care can make for smoother sailing and a more enjoyable trip!
