TRAVEL IMMUNIZATIONS AND TRAVEL MEDICINE

What are travel immunizations?

Travel immunizations provide valuable protection against global disease outbreaks. Many vaccine-preventable diseases are rare or not found in the U.S., but common in other countries. Our travel medicine clinicians know the latest health alerts and can determine which vaccines are needed to protect your employees. Without recommended/required vaccines, your employees may be vulnerable to dangerous, potentially fatal diseases or may not be permitted to enter a specific country.

    PROTECT YOUR EMPLOYEES WITH TRAVEL MEDICINE

    When traveling, your employees need medications to prevent illnesses such as malaria and/or antibiotics to self-treat conditions like travelers’ diarrhea. Concentra® travel medicine clinicians consider the traveler’s itinerary, activities, medical history, and currently taken medications in providing health and safety counseling, medications, and vaccines – all in the interest of lessening the negative impact of a destination’s substandard environment, food, water, and sanitation.

          As of October 2018, an adult booster of polio vaccine is recommended for travelers to Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Somalia, and Syria.

          Outbreaks of other vaccine-preventable diseases (measles, meningococcal meningitis, and diphtheria) and non-vaccine-preventable diseases (dengue, chikungunya, and Zika) occur frequently. Concentra travel medicine clinicians can determine which vaccines and behavioral modifications help mitigate risk.
