In our global world, over 1 million people travel internationally each day. In many underdeveloped countries, many vaccine preventable diseases are still fairly common such as polio and measles. Without vaccines, epidemics of many preventable diseases could return to the US resulting in increased illness and even death. For this reason, vaccination before travel is imperative to ensure global public health. Dr. Michael Aziz is committed to ensuring maximum immunization coverage to his patients in his Midtown East practice from children to the elderly.
We offer a wide variety of vaccinations recommended and required for international travel based on latest guidelines from the Center of Disease Control. In fact, we specialize in these hard to find travel vaccines.
If you are traveling to Africa, Asia or South America, you are very in need of vaccines for travel.
We provide the following vaccinations:
Although vaccine-preventable disease levels in the United States have decreased significantly from historic highs, this fact does not mean diseases have disappeared. Indeed, many preventable diseases are in fact making a resurgence due to relaxed adherence to vaccination guidelines. As recent measles and whooping cough outbreaks have shown, we can never take immunization coverage levels for granted or be lax about prevention with vaccination efforts.
So, if you are asking yourself, “What vaccinations do I need for travel?” or “Where can I get the routine vaccines I, or my family, need?” schedule an appointment today.
Dr. Aziz accepts most major insurance plans.
