Epidemics travel too, so vulnerable destinations should be checked prior to travel. If you are planning to visit a region of the world that is currently experiencing a surge in a specific illness, it is in your best interest to know ahead of time and take precautions. And of course not all of the risks are dire, but contracting an illness while abroad can be extremely uncomfortable. In 2010, diseases less threatening than malaria and typhoid still affected many countries of the world. There were outbreaks of measles in Argentina, mumps in Canada, meningitis in Brazil, hepatitis B in India, cholera in Thailand. Sometimes all that’s required to protect you and your family is a booster shot. If you will be traveling within the next six months, safeguard your health by visiting our specialist in travel medicine.
