Travel is a wonderful opportunity to see the world through different eyes, cultures, and geography. Travel brochures, websites, and magazines are filled with sumptuously colored photos of lands far away, exotic people, beaches, food, drinks, art and architecture. Any of us, if physically and fiscally fit, would love to make a getaway.
Before traveling outside the U.S., you must identify health risks and preventive measures needed at your destination. Many patients call just before they’re ready to leave and want to get their travel vaccines as happened recently to some friends leaving for an exotic island chain the very next day.
