Before visiting a foreign country, ask Cone Health for guidance and medical care that help you protect your health on the journey. Your travel group will depart with assurance that you’ve taken steps to stay safe.
Travelers’ Health Services
Cone Health traveler's health services are provided at our Employee Health & Wellness locations and the Regional Center for Infectious Disease. Schedule a consultation with a travel medicine specialist two to four weeks before your trip. We can:
- Review your medical history and trip itinerary
- Advise your group on staying well in your destination country
- Recommend ways to manage a chronic condition during your trip
Ask your doctor which vaccines you may need for your journey.
It’s best to get vaccinated two to four weeks ahead of your trip. But you’ll still benefit from vaccinations closer to the time of your departure.
If necessary, get one or more of these vaccinations through Cone Health before leaving home:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
- Japanese encephalitis
- Typhoid – Oral and injectable
- Yellow fever – Yellow fever vaccination sites authorized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
