Travel Medicine

Fremont Health Infectious Disease and Travel Medicine provides pre-travel health and safety consultations with patients traveling to foreign countries to determine if special immunizations or other preventative measures are needed.

International travel can expose you to infections for which you have little or no immunity. We’ll perform a risk assessment and counseling based on your health history, travel itinerary, duration of trip, and planned activities, providing a list of required and recommended vaccinations that will maximize your health protection during your trip.

Common vaccinations for global travel:

  • Yellow Fever
  • Typhoid Fever
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Hepatitis A and B
  • Polio
  • Tetanus
  • Influenza
  • Meningococcal Meningitis
  • Pneumovax
  • Rabies
  • Varicella
  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella

We can also prescribe medications to prevent and treat malaria, travelers’ diarrhea, altitude illness, or motion illness, and provide information on protecting yourself from food-borne and insect-borne infections. We’ll review your current immunization status and evaluate any relevant underlying health issues that may affect your travel (e.g., pregnancy, immunodeficiency disorders, cardiopulmonary disease).

Travelers are encouraged to schedule an appointment at least one month prior to international travel, however, a last minute visit still provides benefits.
