Food is a human need that can always offer a wonderful taste of a new culture, but it often has the potential to be harmful. Hepatitis A, typhoid, meningitis and cholera are examples of food-borne diseases. Although careful choices are necessary, having vaccinations before traveling provides you with unbeatable security.
With yellow fever outbreaks on the rise, especially in Brazil, it’s more important than ever for travelers to get the yellow fever vaccine, which can prevent symptoms including fever, vomiting, and muscle pain. Yellow fever can cause hepatitis in serious cases. Yellow fever vaccine is available at Passport Health Clinics, which are also approved Yellow Fever Vaccination Centers.
Travelers’ diarrhea is the most common illness affecting international travelers. The symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, cramping. It is caused by contaminated food or water and can last up to seven days. You can take precautions to prevent travelers’ diarrhea by not eating uncooked food, taking antibiotics, oral re-hydration tablets, and taking DiaResQ. These are all available at Passport Health in our travelers’ diarrhea kits.
Passport Health offers both individual and group preventive health services. It’s not all about vaccines for travelers spending time abroad; there are onsite flu shots, TB testing, biometric screenings, and more available for you and your organization.
