Travel vaccines and travel services for employers

Up to 64% of travelers to the developing world experience travel-related health problems. Travel-related injuries and illnesses have an estimated impact of over $650 million in lost productivity costs for the United States. Many travel-related diseases and illnesses can be prevented by vaccines or medications, while others can be self-treated by the traveler equipped with antibiotics and other medications. As an employer, this means increased employee productivity, decreased medical and extended-stay costs, and decreased lost work-time.

Prepare for the Yellow Fever Vaccination Shortage 

Yellow fever travel vaccination is recommended – and sometimes required – for travelers to certain international destinations. Once a person is infected with yellow fever, it is frequently fatal. Vaccination is the best way to prevent infection, but there’s currently a yellow fever vaccine shortage in the United States. If your employees are traveling internationally, it’s critical that you plan their yellow fever vaccination appointments ahead of time. 

Where to Get Vaccinated for Yellow Fever

Due to the yellow fever vaccine shortage, Stamaril, a yellow fever vaccine used in Europe and other parts of the world, is being made available under a special program. Stamaril is only available in select centers, so extra planning may be required to get vaccinated. 

A Concentra medical center in Houston, Texas is one of only 250 clinics in the United States that provides the Stamaril vaccine. If you aren’t in the Houston area, visit the CDC to find a clinic offering Stamaril near you.

        Interested in travel vaccinations for your employees?

        In addition to travel vaccines, your travel health specialist can prescribe medications to prevent and/or self-treat common illnesses. The specialist can also provide itinerary and activity-specific counseling to help employees stay healthy while traveling abroad.

        Be sure your employees make an appointment with a Concentra travel health specialist four to six weeks prior to their departure date. Many travel vaccines require multiple doses and specific lengths of time to reach maximum protection.
