“What travel shots do I need to go to Brazil, (India, Haiti, China, Ghana, Botswana, Nigeria, Tanzania, Peru, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Mexico, Thailand, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey, etc)?” This is the most common question we hear when travelers are preparing for their trip.
No matter where you are traveling, you should know that you will be exposed to certain organisms that could make you severely ill; perhaps even kill you. As a new or experienced international traveler you should be educated about the environment you’ll be visiting. Ideally, you should schedule your appointment with a Passport Health Travel Medicine Specialist 4-6 weeks prior to your departure date. However, we will always accommodate last minute travelers.
At Passport Health, we don’t just vaccinate, we educate.
From the dangers of sunburn at high altitude and parasitic infections; to vaccine preventable diseases and foods to avoid; our Travel Medicine Specialists will give you all the tools you need to be informed and protected on your international trip.
Our consultations typically last about 45 minutes and include a comprehensive itinerary and specific topics about your travels. Our Travel Medicine Specialists will discuss recommendations (from the CDC, WHO and other sources) and requirements based on your destinations, activities, time of year, altitude and medical history.
