International Travel Coming Up? RVNAhealth Travel Vaccines Will Have You Ready!

Travel Vaccines at RVNAhealth

Honeymoon…babymoon…student term abroad…retirement travel…volunteer mission trips…international business…anniversary celebration…bucket list travel…Whatever drives your need to explore the world, travel can make you feel wonderfully alive!

But it can also expose you to serious diseases that may threaten your health. Don’t be among the people who experience health problems when traveling. According to the CDC, “As many as 43%–79% of travelers to low- and middle-income countries become ill with a travel-associated health problem. Although most of these illnesses are mild, some travelers become sick enough to seek care from a health care provider.”

Before you go, get in the know and learn about your travel health needs, including travel immunizations, by visiting our RVNAhealth travel health clinic.
