We also provide information on how to prevent illness from insects, food, and water. We provide customized information about the countries you’re traveling to, including entry requirements, areas of political or military instability, medical facilities, customs, crime, and laws related to tourists’ health and safety. We review your health and immunization history, as well as your travel plans, and assess your risk for acquiring vaccine-preventable diseases and and other illnesses. Then we can administer the vaccines needed to protect you from these diseases and advise you about how to avoid other illness and injury.
