Timing is very important as some medications need to be given in multiples over a period of time and others may require that they are given a certain time period before travel in order to provide the protection needed.
From the travel itinerary our staff will print a detailed report which gives the traveler information about some of the following:
We are able to check with the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and WHO, World Health Organization. Information such as a possible epidemic or pandemic alert or unrest in the destination area will be discussed with the traveler.
