Traveling abroad can pose serious health risks if you don’t take the right medical precautions. A visit to the Carle Travel Clinic can help take the worry out of international travel. We offer malaria prevention, travel advice and numerous vaccinations, including Yellow Fever and Japanese Encephalitis.
Domestic travel also comes with its own risks for certain members of our community. Pregnant women traveling to a state or US territory / island with a known Zika risk should discuss their travel plans with their doctors before their trip. Additionally, several states have been experiencing measles outbreaks due to low vaccination rates as well as older populations not realizing that their immunity has expired - requiring an MMR booster shot before they travel.
