Heading out for an exotic vacation abroad? International travel can be extremely exciting, but there is also something a little nerve-wracking about leaving behind the comforts and amenities offered in the United States. This can be especially true for first-time travelers or individuals who are visiting locals that are “off the beaten path."
Thankfully, there are ways to make sure your trip goes smoother – before you even board the plane. If you or your family are taking a trip out of town, stop by AFC Urgent Care North Andover to speak with a Provider about the precautions you can take to keep yourself healthy and fit for the flight.
Our board-certified physicians and medical providers can give you a full travel consultation on site. This will allow you to know what to look out for on your travels, what medicines to bring from home, and what immunizations you should receive before leaving.
Whether you are going for a short vacation or for a few months, it is recommended to get updated vaccines. This is due to other countries having illnesses that are not seen in the United States, so our bodies do not have antibodies to fight it off.
Our physicians are trained to know the best vaccines to receive, depending on the country you are going to. Not all vaccines are always available, so it is best to call ahead to make sure. The following vaccines are commonly recommended:
Our physicians may also provide you with medication to take with you. Be sure to provide all of your health risks when you come in for a visit.
AFC Urgent Care in North Andover is a fully-licensed walk-in clinic that offers same-day appointments and extended weekday and weekend hours to patients at a fraction of the cost of typical Emergency Room care. Be prepared for your trip with the proper vaccinations! We recommend visiting at least two weeks before you are scheduled to leave, giving the vaccines time to build antibodies.
With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!
Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
