Travel Medical Examinations PDF Print Email
Travel medicine’s purpose is to keep the traveler free from illness or accident.  Most physicians are not aware of specific travel-related issues, don't stock specialized vaccines (such as yellow fever and Typhoid), and are unfamiliar with tropical diseases.  Pre-travel consultations can be complex; our staff is familiar with these complex issues.  Additionally, under the International Health Regulations, certain international travelers must have proof of vaccination, requiring a properly signed and validated International Certificate of Vaccination.  Factors affecting the risk of illness while traveling are: the country or region the traveler is going tom if the region is rural or urban, the trip duration, use of malaria prophylaxis, past vaccinations, personal risk-taking behavior, and personal health status.
 
Businesses increasingly must operate in the global marketplace.  For these businesses, employees are not only traveling abroad frequently, but in many cases living for extended periods of time in foreign countries.  The risk of illness increases with increased total travel time, and in many cases reaches 60-75%.  Illness can be costly in terms of lost productivity, exposing employee to substandard medical care and extraordinary medical costs.

Our practitioners can help you by providing the latest information and counseling on appropriate preventive measures as well as immunizations and Certificates of Vaccination.  Services includes:

  • Destination Health Risk Reports
  • Personal Medical History Evaluation
  • Physical Examinations
  • Required Immunizations
  • Educational Materials: safe traveling information, current health concerns, country/region information pre-trip planning

Travelers should be seen as soon as possible before their departure.  This allows for a thorough evaluation of the traveler’s health, and outline of immunization schedules, and time for the immunization to take effect.
