PMA is proud to offer Travel Medicine Services to businesses and individuals!
For every 100,000 people who journey to developing countries …
- 75,000 may experience some type of health problem
- 1 in 3 will contract “traveler’s diarrhea”
- 1 in 10 will become sick enough to seek medical attention during or after their trip
Your risk of becoming ill when traveling depends on:
- Areas to be visited
- Length of stay
- Your pre-existing medical conditions
- Your vaccine history
Taking precautions against infections and illness before your next trip is a good investment in your health. Many parts of the world face epidemics and outbreaks of malaria, yellow fever, and food bourne hepatitis, just to name a few. Additionally, some countries require proof of vaccination against diseases like yellow fever and meningitis before they allow you to enter.
Because health situations around the world can change quickly, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend that travelers consult with a health care provider at a travel clinic 4-6 weeks before their trip.
PMA’s Board Certified Infectious Disease physicians will assess your health history and individual needs, provide you with the latest information on current health risks and how to avoid them – including all required and recommended immunizations. Our specialists will review your itinerary carefully and recommend vaccines and other precautions based on current CDC protocols and outbreak notifications. We’ll help you understand how risks can be avoided, effects minimized, or if necessary, treated.
Stay healthy while traveling! Choose PMA for your Travel Health needs.
