International Travel Often Requires Additional Vaccinations

Posted .

Traveling abroad can be exciting and creates the kind of memories that stay with you for a lifetime. Unfortunately, contracting a disease while you are on vacation can rob you of these life-changing opportunities. The last thing you want to do is spend your vacation watching TV in your hotel room or returning home with a significant illness.

In fact, many countries require specific vaccinations before they will allow you access past customs. In addition, the United States State Department often recommends certain immunizations for citizens traveling to certain countries.

At Dr. John Abroon’s clinic in the Upper East Side of New York, he can provide you with the necessary screenings and vaccinations required for your intended destination. This could include the typhoid vaccine, meningococcal (meningitis) vaccine, and other specific immunizations.

If your current immunizations are not up to date, our doctor can also offer boosters for vaccines such as diphtheria, measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and pertussis.

Once your immunizations are up to date and compliant with international requirements, you can relax and enjoy your international vacation.

If you are in the New York, New York, area and you need immunizations for an upcoming international trip, you should call 212-288-0900 to schedule an appointment at Dr. John Abroon’s clinic on the Upper East Side.
