Preventative and treatment plans for travel issues

Also known as: Travel preventative and treatment plans

Preparing for a journey takes planning and time. Proper planning is the best way to stay healthy during your trip. See a doctor at least six weeks before you go so that you'll have time for immunizations and other health precautions you may need to take in advance. Better yet, talk to your doctor as soon as you know you will be traveling. There are some shots that need to be given more than once, and you may need more than six weeks in some cases. There are several things to think about in preparing for a trip.

International travel is an exciting and potentially dangerous endeavor. Travelers will encounter different public health standards and environmental conditions while away from home, and these can lead to illness.
