Vaccines prevent illness and death
Your health should not be taken for granted. If you are considering international travel, a critical part of planning your trip is to call us for help in protecting your health. The Centers for Disease Control recommends travelers receive specific vaccinations and medicine before traveling to many countries. There are preventable diseases that are endemic to other parts of the world that kill millions of people each year. Which travel vaccines you need depends on the international travel destination, whether the area is rural or not, the season of the year, your age, health status, and previous immunizations. You will also receive advice on dealing with outbreaks such as the swine flu. (www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu)
Travel Immunization Vaccines for all preventable diseases
International Travelers should verify their history of vaccination against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, poliomyelitis, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b, and pneumococcal invasive disease before traveling. If there are gaps, immunization should be obtained, whether or not international travel is planned. As one of the largest private vaccine purchasers, Passport Health provides affordable travel vaccines that doctor offices can not provide.
Comprehensive Travel Health Information
Old National Urgent Care’s trained physicians and nurses prepare business and leisure travelers for international travel. We provide a comprehensive overview of travel health and safety procedures based on your destination, health history and any special considerations or needs. Many area physicians refer patients to us for services they don’t provide. For example, many physicians do not stock yellow fever vaccine and are not certified to provide yellow fever vaccination.
