The Centers for Disease Control recommends the following on what you should do to prepare for your travel:
Research Your Destination
It’s a good idea to start your research by acquiring general knowledge of the destination as well as any current health warnings or concerns. Visit cdc.gov for country-specific travel information. The pharmacists at Gatti Pharmacy are also knowledgeable on destination-specific requirements and recommendations.
Learn What Vaccines You Need To Obtain
We’re happy to help you determine what vaccines you’ll need before you come for your vaccine appointment! At the Center for Disease Control’s website, www.cdc.gov, you will find an up-to-date list of vaccines both recommended and required for each country.
Visit Your Doctor
It is recommended that you obtain vaccines 4-6 weeks in advance of travel. Most vaccines take time to become effective in your body and some vaccines must be given in a series over a period of days or sometimes weeks. Even if you are traveling within the next 4 weeks, you should still consult your doctor as you might still benefit from shots or medications. Many vaccines do not require a prescription from your physician, but several do. Please contact us for more information on what we need prior to your appointment. The sooner before your trip you contact us, the better, as certain vaccines can take as long as 6 months to complete the entire series.
