Prevent Disease with Travel & Domestic Immunizations

Friday Aug 25, 2017 by textivia-dev in

Picture this: you’re on a vacation overseas enjoying yourself when you notice a mosquito perching on your arm. You don’t think much of it as you swat the insect away. It isn’t until later that you notice you aren’t feeling so good. Clearly, you’re coming down with something, but you can’t tell what. Little do you know it at the time, but you’ve contracted yellow fever — a disease that could have been easily prevented by getting an immunization in advance.

If you’re thinking about going on a vacation soon, don’t forget to get immunized against foreign diseases. Getting an immunization before you go can ensure that you won’t have to worry about catching diseases that aren’t prominent in the U.S. At Essential Health & Wellness, we provide vaccines against several serious foreign pathogens:

  • Yellow Fever
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Typhoid Fever
  • Malaria

Any of these diseases are enough to ruin a vacation, and some can take a long time to subside. That’s why it’s so important to remember immunizations before you travel.

Don’t Let Immunization Be the Last Thing You Worry About

The best reason to get an immunization from a foreign disease is to ensure that your trip goes as smoothly as possible. When you catch a disease while traveling, it can severely impact any plans you may have had laid out. Foreign illnesses are often incredibly easy to catch in select locales. All the diseases outlined above are spread through unpredictable means — mainly by mosquito bite and or contaminated food and water. With factors that far out of your control, taking preventative measures is your only way of guaranteed safety.

We Offer Travel Immunizations to Everyone

If you want to get a travel immunization from Essential Health & Wellness, you don’t need to be a member of our 24/7 Healthcare Direct subscribers. In fact, anyone is welcome to come by to get immunized. We believe that when you don’t have to spend your vacation worrying about catching a disease, you’re able to have that much more fun.

Options for Domestic Immunizations

Even if you’re not traveling abroad, we’ve still got you covered for all of your immunization needs. When you choose Essential Health & Wellness, we provide you with options for:

  • Annual Influenza (Flu Shots)
  • Shingles Vaccine
  • Tdap Vaccine (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis)
  • Pneumococcal Vaccine
  • Meningococcal Vaccine
  • Hepatitis A Vaccine
  • Hepatitis B Vaccine
  • Combination Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B Series Vaccine

Staying immunized domestically is just as — if not more — important than staying immunized for travel. Nobody likes getting sick. Because of just how easy it is to come into contact with pathogens in your day-to-day life, you should make sure that you and your family stay protected. That gives you the peace of mind that no matter what situation you encounter, you won’t have to worry about getting sick.
