Regardless if it is for recreation or business, you always need to pack for trips to make sure you don’t leave unprepared. While you are getting your suitcase put together, let AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove prepare your immune system for overseas travel. No one wants to travel halfway around the world to experience what it feels like to be severely ill in a different country. This is especially true if you are sick from something that could have been easily prevented.
Our walk-in urgent care center carries many of the vaccines required for overseas travel. Give us some details about your trip and we’ll check with the latest CDC guidance to make sure you have the proper immunizations for travel. It is our goal to make your trip as safe as possible so you can avoid preventable illnesses while overseas.
No appointment is needed to be seen by one of our board-certified physicians at our walk-in medical clinic. In order for vaccines to be fully effective, we recommend visiting our facility 4 to 6 weeks before your departure. This gives the vaccine time to be fully in place in your immune system. While we do keep many of the needed vaccines onsite, we may need to order some depending on your destination. With that said, we are fully able to assist last minute travelers who need their vaccinations right away.
Besides vaccines, AFC Urgent Care Willow Grove can assist in providing you other common medications needed for overseas travel. This includes anti-malaria drugs to prevent malaria. Did you not follow the advice about not drinking the local water? Anti-Diarrheal medication may help. Going to the top of the world? Talk to our doctors about ways to mitigate altitude sickness.
