The travel consultation includes current health risks for the countries on the patient’s itinerary, review and recommendations for vaccinations, precautionary measures like malaria and traveler’s diarrhea, and other health and safety issues such as insect avoidance and environmental illnesses.

Patients can usually receive all necessary vaccinations in one visit, along with any necessary prescriptions. A full immunization record, patient information sheets, and precautionary health measures will be provided. All patients receive customized recommendations based on their specific health issues and needs as well as potential risks in the countries they plan to visit that may have a greater or lesser impact on them personally (such as Zika virus for women who are pregnant). Insect repellent products are also available. International Traveler’s Medical Clinic will work directly with the patient’s primary care physician to assure coordination of care and obtain medical records if necessary.

The goal of International Traveler’s Medical Clinic is always to ensure the best possible health status for our patients while allowing them to relax and enjoy their trip.
