Miami Travel Medicine Knowledge
Travel health medicine is a relatively new medical specialty that focuses only on protecting the health of international travelers–like Miami residents–while they are abroad. Our Passport Health offices provide comprehensive travel medicine advice, counseling, vaccinations and supplies. Because we concern ourselves only with travel medicine, we are able to focus much more closely on emerging medical science related to travel medicine.
Our highly skilled travel medicine professionals can pass this in-depth travel medicine knowledge to you during a one-on-one appointment at any of our Miami offices. During your nearly one-hour-long appointment, you will be briefed on all relevant travel warnings for your destination, and you will receive written materials about how to deal with those potential health risks. You can then have your travel vaccinations in our comfortable and quiet offices.
In addition to your vaccinations, our Miami travel health professionals can provide you with all of the necessary travel medicines and train you in their proper use. For Miami residents traveling to rainy areas in Africa or Asia, our counselors will provide you with anti-malarial medicine and discuss the proper use of the pills. You can then rest assured that should you come into contact with malaria risks, you can counter them easily.
Begin preparing for your travel by calling our main Miami travel health and medicine office today. We pride ourselves on accommodating our client’s schedules, so you can book a Saturday appointment if needed. Ask about our on-site group vaccinations if you are planning to travel with a corporate or school group.
Q: Can’t I just go to my doctor for travel shots?
A: Yes, but unless your doctor happens to specialize in travel medicine, he or she will:
• Have to do extensive research to determine what you need
• Probably not have the necessary documents to record your vaccines
• Have to charge you far more due to small vaccine purchases
Q: How about the local health department?
A: A county health department won’t normally carry everything you need for your trip – we do!
