Stay Healthy While Traveling Abroad

Whether you're on vacation, planning to study abroad, conducting business, travel means it includes special health considerations, such as knowing the types of vaccinations you need, when to get them and knowing if you need the protection against malaria.
It's also good to undergo preventive health counseling, and having prescription medications and immunizations to reduce risk of illness while abroad.

Seek help from medical experts on where to get individual risk assessments based on your health, travel itineraries and anticipated activities.

Also try to schedule travel medicine consultations well in advance of your trip, at least 4-6 weeks in advance. It's because some vaccines must be given in a series over several days or even weeks.
