Traveler Health & Safety

Lahey International Travel Medicine helps ensure your health and safety while abroad. We offer vaccines, medications and prescriptions based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

Appointments include a review of your medical history, country-by-country analysis of your itinerary, accommodations, anticipated activities, immunization records and current medications to create a customized treatment and prevention plan.

We provide prescriptions and vaccines for many common travel-related illnesses, including traveler’s diarrhea, malaria prevention, hepatitis, typhoid fever, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, polio, measles, mumps, rubella and rabies. In addition, we also provide the International Certificate of Vaccination as approved by the World Health Organization.

Travelers with specific medical needs, including those who are immunosuppressed, pregnant or planning to become pregnant and those with chronic illness, can ask questions and get advice about potential risks and prevention strategies. We also offer treatment guidelines for common traveler health issues, such as jet lag, insect and animal bites, motion sickness and altitude-related illness, rabies prevention and wound care.

Visits are available for individuals, couples, families and groups. We recommend scheduling your appointment at least four weeks prior to your trip when possible.
