Travelling with medications

Make sure to bring all medications in their original packaging, and consider bringing a note from your doctor. It may be worthwhile to bring extra in case of lost baggage or delays while travelling. Always keep your medications with you in your carry on bag, and bring a copy of your original prescription.

Travel illnesses

Illnesses such as traveler’s diarrhea, cholera, and meningitis. When travelling, we may be exposed to new viruses and infections – it is important to be aware of health risks specific to your destination and take appropriate precautions.

Vaccinations

Currently, vaccines are available for a number of illnesses that are more common abroad, such as typhoid. It is important to know what illnesses your destination countries are at risk for, and get vaccinated ahead of time. Give our team a call today if you have any questions about which illnesses your destination country may be a concern for.
