Travel Medicine

Do you have plans to travel out of the country?

Depending on where you are traveling, you may need immunizations, preventative medications or advice about general precautions. If you are traveling internationally, you should be aware of the potential risk of contracting an infectious disease(s). It's important to get vaccinated at least four to six weeks before you travel internationally. This will give the vaccines time to start working, so you're protected while you're traveling. It will also ensure there is enough time to get vaccinations that require more than one dose. Schedule a travel medicine consult with MHP's Dr. Diego to find out what you need for your upcoming trip. Learn practical ways of managing acute or chronic illness in unfamiliar settings. Call our office at 317.421.1914 to schedule an appointment and get a cost estimate.
