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 travel-vaccines-afc-urgent-care-west-hartforddeveloped 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.

Travel Vaccinations Travel Medicine FAQs

  • Why choose AFC for Urgent Care?

    With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    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.
