At Elite Medical Clinic, we can help you plan for your work trip, vacation, or trip abroad. Whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure, we will assess your health care needs and tailor a preventative treatment specific to your travel itinerary.
It’s always exciting to take a long-overdue vacation or journey abroad. But remember: to get the most out of your trip, there are many things your provider will need to know to help you the best advice possible.
Here are a few tips to help you prepare for your trip:
Some vaccinations take time to begin working. If you’re traveling abroad, research the vaccinations you will need and when you should receive them.
Also, think about the following questions before you visit your provider:
Whether you wear glasses or contacts or you take prescription medication, pack as much as you need to get you through your trip – and then some. Not all medication accessible in the United States is readily available overseas. Pack spare glasses and extra medication in a carry on bag in case your luggage is lost or stolen.
If you have a complex or chronic health condition, ask your primary care provider or other physician to prepare a medical summary of your situation. English is the international language of medicine, and most providers abroad will be able to read and comprehend your provider’s notes.
Contact your health insurance provider to determine if it covers you overseas. If not, you may be able to purchase travel health insurance at an affordable price.
Elite Medical Clinic offers a wide range of immunizations for adults.
If you have any questions about which vaccines are best for you, feel free to give us a call. No appointments are necessary, but call ahead to make sure that we have the vaccination you need in stock and on-site.

Preventative health care is important, and Elite Medical Clinic is here to help.

The CDC recommends that all healthy individuals receive the Influenza vaccine and that the following high-risk groups receive the vaccine whenever possible:
