Before setting sail for your dream vacation, it’s important to make sure you’re 100% ready. In addition to having the appropriate travel documents, clothing, airline tickets and currency, you also need to be properly immunized. While it may be healthy for your emotional well-being to visit exotic foreign countries, these places are fraught with a host of potentially deadly diseases and viruses. Because your body has never come in contact with these foreign bacteria, it’s extremely vulnerable, as it has never had the chance to build up an immunity to them.

Vaccinations will allow your body to defend itself against these deadly viruses and diseases. At American Family Care, we provide a number of vaccinations to ensure you can embark on your adventure of a lifetime. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a variety of vaccinations for people depending on what location they’re travelling to. The only required vaccination prior to travelling, as per International health regulations, is the Yellow Fever vaccine, which is required before visiting certain South American and Sub-Saharan African countries.

However, many study abroad programs require additional vaccinations. We at American Family Care will ensure that you are administered all the necessary vaccines and given all the proper paperwork reflecting your vaccination history. We can also provide patients with any requested travel medicine besides vaccines, too. This includes:

  • Antimalarials
  • Motion Sickness Medication
  • Antidiarrheals
  • Altitude Sickness Medication
  • Pre-participation examination

Visit us any day of the week and we can provide you with your vaccination in an affordable and timely manner. For any questions, call us anytime during business hours at 678.348.5119. We look forward to helping you adventure to the other side of the world!
