You would not travel without making sure you had everything packed, would you? So why would you travel without preparing yourself? It is recommended to consult a doctor before any travel plans especially international. Many other countries have different bacteria and different diseases making it necessary to be prepared with proper vaccines and medicines. The CDC recommends different vaccines depending where you travel so it is important to consult a doctor.

AFC Urgent Care Stamford provides travel medicine and travel immunizations to all patients. Our board certified doctors will sit down with you and review your travel itinerary. They will recommend necessary vaccines as well as offer tips to staying healthy abroad. Our doctors can also prescribe Anti-Malarial, Anti-Diarrheal, and motion sickness medicines for use while traveling.

Our comprehensive travel medicine program includes a number of health care services including:

  • Medicines for malaria, diarrhea, motion sickness, & altitude sickness
  • Required & recommended travel vaccines
  • Medical screenings

Ideally, patients should consult a doctor 4-6 weeks before travel. However, even if your trip is tomorrow, AFC Urgent Care can still help. Our walk-in center never requires an appointment. We are staffed with board certified doctors as well as Medical Assistants and X-Ray technicians.
