Description:

Traveling to different countries can be exciting. However, when you travel to a tropical or developing country, you may be unsure about the safety and quality of food and water, and you may be exposed to mosquitoes and other disease-carrying insects and animals. Certain vaccine-preventable illnesses (such as polio, measles, rubella) may be endemic in the countries you are traveling to. If you do not know what the risks are or how to protect against them you may become ill or injured either while your traveling, or sometimes after you return home.

Our goal is to help keep your trip free from illness. To meet this goal, you will be asked to complete a detailed questionnaire regarding your health and your travel itinerary. This will help us make appropriate recommendations for vaccinations and preventive medications. Advice about food and beverage precautions, protection against insects, and adequate vaccinations will be given. Occasionally, blood tests to check whether you are immune to certain diseases (such as Hepatitis A, Rubella) may be recommended.

The State of Florida Department of Health has designated the International Travel Clinic as a Yellow Fever Vaccination Center. Besides the yellow fever vaccine, routine vaccinations recommended in the United States (like Hepatitis B, tetanus) and vaccinations for international travel (such as Hepatitis A, typhoid) are offered.

Our staff routinely obtains information about diseases that are prevalent in countries around the world from Center for Diseases Control, World Health Organization and other sources. Diseases that you may be exposed to during your travel will be discussed.

We wish you safe and disease-free travel. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them.

After you return, if you develop symptoms such as fevers, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, blood in stools, headaches, skin rash, joint and muscle pain, please schedule a follow-up visit. If you develop any complications that may be related to the vaccines or advice you received, please call us at your earliest convenience.
