It’s definitely necessary to get the right vaccinations before travelling to another continent. It’s necessary for Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, or Central or South America. Getting the right vaccination is so important and may even be vital, helping you fight off potentially serious diseases like malaria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, measles, yellow fever, or others.
Depending on where you’re travelling to, you may need one or more of the following vaccines or others:
– Hepatitis A
– Hepatitis B
– Typhoid fever
– Yellow fever
– Meningococcal disease
– Varicella (chickenpox)
– Measles/mumps/rubella (MMR)
Ask the doctor you see if they would recommend another vaccine other than the ones we listed above. And remember to get your travel companions vaccinated too! There’s an optimal time to get a vaccine, so let’s get into that next.
First of all, it’s a good idea to plan big or international travels at least a month ahead. This will help you prepare properly. It’s important to get the vaccine(s) you need 4-6 weeks before you leave, as this will ensure the vaccine has the time it needs in your body to become most effective. If you’re leaving in no less than two weeks, you can and should still get the vaccines you need.
If your time is short and you need a vaccination right away, that’s okay, as an urgent care can likely accommodate you. We almost certainly can accommodate you here at Fast Aid Urgent Care!
You certainly could go see your primary care physician or possibly even your local pharmacy for a vaccination, but this isn’t always the best idea, as with your physician, you’ll have to wait for an appointment, and with your pharmacy, they may not have the vaccination you need on hand. It’s often much better and easier to get your shots at an urgent care!
The thing about urgent cares is that often, an appointment isn’t required, so you can just walk right in for your vaccinations right on the spot. You can bring in anyone who’ll be travelling with you, including your children or a senior person. Also, an urgent care clinic like ours is very likely to have the vaccinations you need on-hand.
Yes, we do! Fast Aid Urgent Care is able to provide travel vaccines. Come see us today, call us, or join the virtual line for a travel vaccination. You and anyone you’ll be travelling with are more than welcome to come see us. We’re open for you late 7 days a week, weekdays and weekends!
