Have a safe trip!
What you don’t know can hurt you!
Thousands of travelers become ill each year and many of them are children. Common travel diseases like malaria, typhoid fever and hepatitis are preventable if you plan ahead. Additionally, travel needs, health issues and risks for children are different than adults. Some medications, dosages and vaccines commonly recommended for travel may not be appropriate for children or teenagers.
A visit to TravelKids includes customized recommendations to meet your child’s needs and travel plans. We also provide the following preventive services:
*Review of local outbreaks
*Food and water counseling
*Malaria and insect avoidance
*Community service project risk avoidance
*Yellow Fever Immunization
*International Vaccination Certificate
*Typhoid Fever Immunization
*Japanese Encephalitis Immunization
*Rabies pre-travel Immunization
