Traveling Abroad? Protect Your Health!
There are many diseases that are not common in the U.S. but very common in other countries. If you are planning to travel abroad, especially to developing countries, it is advisable to get immunizations recommended for specific countries before you leave. Routine adult vaccinations may not be sufficient to guard you from diseases such as yellow fever, hepatitis A or B, typhoid, rabies, etc.
Some vaccinations require 4-6 weeks to take effect. We recommend visiting Dr. Kathleen Vanier several months prior to your departure date to get the right vaccination schedule. She will ask what type of trip you are planning: a short, luxury hotel or resort destination versus a trip to rural, underserved areas for a longer length of time. The more you can share about your itinerary, the better equipped Dr. Vanier will be to recommend the right immunizations.
