Travel Vaccinations in Burlington, MA
When traveling internationally, everyone should be prepared. That includes making sure all vaccinations are up to date as well as vaccines specific to the country in question. Travel vaccines are some of the most important medical services to ensure that your vacation or business goes smoothly without the threat of an illness or international disease risk.
Why are Travel Vaccines Necessary?
Travel vaccinations are extremely important because they allow international travelers to safely enter new countries that may have foreign diseases. While most adults are vaccinated for diseases in the U.S they may not have the necessary immunity for diseases that are more common in other parts of the world.
At AFC Urgent Care Burlington, we can help you with your travel plans and make sure you are fully prepared for travel before you leave. Our team of urgent care staff and providers can help you get travel vaccinations for international diseases including malaria, yellow fever, and similar illnesses.
We recommend that patients get updated travel vaccines at least four weeks in advance of their trip. As a part of our travel vaccination program, some of the services we provide at our urgent care center include:
- Travel Vaccinations
- Anti-Malaria Medicine
- Anti-Diarrhea Medicine
- Physical Examinations
- Remedies for Altitude and Motion Sickness
Walk-ins are always welcome at AFC Urgent Care; however, we recommend visiting us at least 4-6 weeks before travel. Some vaccinations take time to take effect while others require multiple doses given weeks or months apart. Should you require last minute care, we can still do our best to be of assistance.
