Travel Medicine Clinic
Each year as many as 45 million Americans travel abroad and as many as 25% of them had some type of illness during their trip. Diarrhea and the common cold seem to be the most common illnesses. On a typical two-week trip, travelers can lose an average of three days because of illness.
Ideally, if you plan to travel abroad you should contact the Edward Travel Medicine Clinic at least six weeks before your departure to allow time for booster immunizations and assessment of any adverse reactions. The pre-travel history includes documentation of all of the places you plan to visit, the time of year for the trip, the purpose of the visit and the duration of stay. In addition, your allergy history will be reviewed, as well as the vaccination history and past medical history. Current diseases, medications and allergies influence vaccine indications and contraindications. Each piece of information assists the Edward Travel Medicine Clinic in determining the relative risks and benefits of vaccines and medicines for your trip.
