When it comes to a pre-travel medical care, there are some questions that we commonly hear from our patients. Here are just a few examples:
At your pre-travel appointment, which should occur usually 4-6 weeks before your trip abroad, there are a number of things your physician will want to know about your travels. Some information your physician will ask you about includes where you are traveling, the duration of your trip and the types of activities you will be participating in. In addition, your physician will want to know about any previous vaccinations you've had, so it is always beneficial to bring a record of this to your appointment.
The vaccinations or medications you receive at your pre-travel visit are dependent on the area that you are going to and how long you will be there. Another factor is if you have had a previous vaccination or not. Some common diseases while abroad include malaria and typhoid.
