Making sure you have the right travel vaccines is not only necessary to keep you safe during your travels but to help ensure global public health. Some vaccines, such as yellow fever, require proof of immunization in order to enter the country. For vaccine recommendations, you can consult your local Passport Health.
Yellow Fever, a mosquito-borne virus that can cause fever, vomiting, and even hepatitis can be prevented through a yellow fever vaccine. This vaccine is available at all Passport Health Clinics.
Not all vaccines can be given to young children, and the Center for Disease Control has created vaccination schedules for different age groups. Passport Health aims to make sure everyone is vaccinated against the dangerous diseases, not just travelers.
The most common illness affecting foreign travelers is travelers’ diarrhea. Diarrhea, vomiting, and cramping are some of the symptoms. It can last up to seven days and is caused by polluted food or water. Travelers’ diarrhea can be avoided by not consuming raw foods, taking antibiotics, taking oral rehydration pills, and taking DiaResQ. All of these things can be found in our travelers’ diarrhea kits at Passport Health.
