Travel Vaccinations and Travel Medicine

Travel Vaccinations and Travel Medicine

We highly recommend that people consult a doctor prior to traveling. Some studies suggest that about half of those traveling abroad for a month or more get sick. Before traveling, people should meet with a health provider to decide what vaccinations and medicines will be needed when traveling. Be seen by a health care professional at least 4-6 weeks before any international travel. You may need this much time to complete a vaccine series, and your body needs time to build up immunity.

Many developing countries have different illnesses than us or illnesses that are eradicated in developed countries. Many of these illnesses have vaccines or medicines to protect the traveler. At AFC Urgent Care West Hartford, we can sit down with you and give you a consultation on what you will need based on the country you are traveling to. Our trained providers can also prescribe anti-malaria and anti-diarrhea medicines. We can also offer medical advice that will help with your travels.

At AFC Urgent Care West Hartford, there are rarely waits as we accept all walk-in visits every day of the week. We offer later hours than a traditional doctor’s office and even weekend hours. Call us today at (860) 986-6440 or visit us at 1030 Boulevard in West Hartford*.
