Travel Medicine

Before taking any trip, it’s a good idea to see a doctor. He or she can talk with you about diseases and risks linked to the area you will be visiting. While no one believes they will get sick while traveling, infectious diseases are widespread in many countries.

You can greatly reduce your risk of getting tropical diseases by getting the right travel vaccines and preventive medications prior to your trip. The doctors at CareNow® will develop a plan tailored to your medical needs including the specific countries you plan to visit.

Most foreign countries have diseases like malaria, yellow fever, Hepatitis A, and typhoid fever that we rarely see here in Texas. For that reason, the Health Department and most pharmacies don’t have all the vaccines needed for overseas travel. CareNow® has the most up-to-date, in-depth information on every country you visit.

At CareNow®, we provide more than just vaccines. Your physician will also prescribe medications to protect against disease and help you with any other travel-related conditions. Vaccines offered at our Bedford-Euless location include yellow fever, typhoid, hepatitis A & B, meningococcal and tetanus.

A CareNow® physician can give you initial recommendations by phone prior to arriving at a clinic. Once you arrive, your physician will review your medical history and help you decide which vaccines and medications are appropriate for your trip.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a full list of vaccinations recommended based on your travel destination.
