Have you started planning your next international adventure? Maybe you happen to be visiting a foreign country for work, studying abroad, or perhaps volunteering.

These services are for people who are traveling to a wide variety of different destinations. Be sure that you are traveling safely.
If you are not 100% sure if you need vaccinations for the country you are vising, UCare Urgent Care and Walk-In Clinic is here to help you figure that out. You will need vaccinations if you’re traveling to Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
These immunizations/vaccinations are crucial if you need to fight off infections like Malaria, Polio, Hepatitis A and B, Typhoid and Yellow Fever, Meningitis, Influenza, or Rabies.
While you may have heard of these infections before, however, they are rare, and some even non-existent, in the United States. These diseases are much more common in other countries, especially in the developing countries. If your body is not well prepared to fight these infections, your exciting vacation could be cut short. Our doctors and medical professionals will help you take the proper steps to ensure that your next adventure stays on track so you can enjoy every minute with no worry.
Doctors at UCare Urgent Care and Walk-In Clinic recommend that you get vaccinated 4 – 6 weeks before you leave since vaccines can take time to be fully effective. However, if you are running a bit behind, it is better to be late than to not get them at all.
There could be some diseases that you may come into contact with that may not be preventable with vaccinations. So, it is rather important to take some extra precautions when traveling out of the country. Some precautions that the doctors and medical professionals at UCare Urgent Care and Walk-In Clinic suggest include:
• Be sure to be washing your hands frequently
• Be careful of contaminated food (to be safe, eat foods that are cooked thoroughly)
• Drink bottled water (never on tap)
• Use insect repellent; to protect yourself from mosquitos
• Stay away from animals to avoid any potential unexpected bites
• Pack a first aid kit for all general emergencies
