Get Immunized Before Traveling to a Foreign Country

If you are planning a trip outside of the U.S., it’s important to check if you’ll need any vaccinations for your destination. Certain destinations have particularly high incidences of specific illnesses or diseases not often seen in America, such as polio or yellow fever. Travel medicine focuses on keeping you healthy while in a foreign country, particularly if it’s a developing country, where certain diseases which are rare in the U.S. are still common.

Don’t let a preventable illness disrupt your vacation or delay planned activities. Come to AFC Urgent Care East Meadow to get vaccinated before your trip!

What Vaccinations Will I Need?

The answer depends on where you are planning to travel. Our physicians are familiar with recommended vaccinations for any given world region, and can provide you with a comprehensive, up-to-date list. Be sure to tell us if you plan on visiting multiple countries during your trip, because you may require additional vaccinations.

Not all diseases require vaccinations, but you may need to take medication to prevent an illness, such as malaria. Your physician will discuss all potential health hazards for your trip abroad, as well as provide instructions for keeping healthy while overseas.

Vaccination is recommended at least 4 to 6 weeks before your departure.

*To ensure your specific vaccine is available at your desired location, we recommend calling in advanced about your specific vaccine needs.

No appointments are necessary at AFC Urgent Care East Meadow! Simply walk in, and we’ll make sure you are well prepared for your international travels. Contact us today to learn more.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • What vaccinations do you offer in your clinics?

    We offer a wide range of common vaccinations for people of every age. For infants, we can provide regular vaccines against diseases like pertussis, hepatitis B, and PCV. For adults, we offer flu shots, and tetanus shots, shingles vaccines, and many more. Contact your local clinic and let us know which vaccine you need.

  • How do I know if I need a vaccine?

    If you're not in one of the situations listed above, but you still think it might be time for a vaccine, check out the https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd/vaccines-age.html to review recommended vaccines for every age group.

  • Is it safe to get my vaccinations from AFC instead of my regular doctor?

    Yes, AFC offers several services that otherwise are made available only through an appointment at your doctor's office. Whether you need a regular checkup, vaccinations, or lab work, we're able to provide healthcare alongside your general practitioner, so you never need to go without the services you need.
