Travel Medicine Vaccinations
Who doesn’t love to travel and explore our beautiful country? But if you and your family plan to travel outside the United States, you will need to get travel vaccines in order to protect yourself from serious illnesses and diseases.
From the CDC website:
“Visiting another country can put you at risk for diseases that may not normally be found in the United States. Getting vaccinated against certain diseases is one of the most effective things you can do to protect your health abroad. Plan to get the travel vaccines you need at least a month before your trip. Most vaccines need to be given ahead of time to give you full protection against a disease. If you need a yellow fever vaccine, plan to travel some distance away from where you live to get it. Only a limited number of clinics have the vaccine.”
At your Health Now Centennial family practice office, we can provide you with the necessary vaccinations to keep you safe, worry-free and healthy while you travel abroad. Tell us about your itinerary so that we may give you the proper vaccines for the areas to which you will be traveling.
