Travel Tips from your local Specialists!

Remember for travel consultations please bring ALL your records from previously received vaccines, including your yellow card. This will help to avoid unnecessary vaccines.

Hepatitis A is the number one vaccine preventable illness while traveling. You may also get Hepatitis A here in the U.S. prompting health officials to make Hep A vaccine a required childhood vaccine.  Even if you are not traveling, consider vaccination against this disease if you consider yourself an adventurous eater!

The Hepatitis vaccines are a series. Hepatitis B is a three part series and Hepatitis A is a two part series. If you are not sure whether you have received all the appropriate vaccines to complete the series, stop in to discuss with your travel health specialist today! Please visit Highland Travel Medicine.
