Travel Medicine in Hillsdale, NJ

Traveling is fun. There is no better experience than getting out of your comfort zone and exploring new cultures and people. However, traveling has its own risks, and every traveler should be aware of those. AFC Urgent Care Hillsdale wants you to be as safe and healthy as possible in order to enjoy your trip. No matter the destination, it’s essential to take certain precautions while traveling.

Do I Need Travel Medicine?

Before every trip, ask yourself these questions:

  • Have you visited a healthcare provider before your trip?
  • Do you know which vaccinations you need for your destinations?
  • Do you have a weak immune system due to certain health conditions?
  • Are you pregnant or breastfeeding?
  • Is there a baby or child traveling with you?
  • Are you aware of the health risk at your destinations?

Answering these questions is crucial to having a wonderful time and experience traveling. Certain diseases could possibly affect your trips and make your experience an unpleasant one. Some countries can have prevalent diseases that are not as common in the United States. This means your body may not have the proper antibodies to help fight off the virus.
