Travel medicine

Stay healthy and safe while traveling to another country. Turn to the international travel medicine team at ProHealth Care for comprehensive, personalized advice on preventing illnesses and injuries when you’re away from home.

Should I see a travel health specialist?

Make a travel medicine consultation part of preparing for any trip outside the United States – especially if you’re pregnant or live with a chronic health condition, like diabetes or asthma. Keep in mind that even healthy people can be affected by changes in altitude, temperature, humidity and water quality.

Make your appointment early

See your local travel medicine care team at least four to six weeks before your departure date. This allows you enough time to get your recommended vaccinations and medication.

Personalized medical advice for travel

Your travel consultation appointment lasts 45 to 60 minutes. During this time, your care team will:

  • Look at your current health, including allergies and medications.
  • Review your health history, including your immunization record.
  • Discuss the health risks associated with the places you’re going and the activities you have planned.
  • Explain what vaccinations or other medications you need to protect your health.
  • Tell you how to prevent and treat illnesses, including motion sickness and traveler’s diarrhea.
  • Talk about ways to stay safe while traveling.
  • Address your questions and concerns.
