Travel Medicine

Travel medicine is an important component of real life. Whether you are traveling for work or for pleasure, it may be necessary to schedule a travel consultation to learn of the risks that you face with your current health concerns. Further, travel vaccines may be needed based upon where you plan on traveling.

At Foster City Medical Center, we are here to help you with all of your travel medicine needs. Traveling overseas can be difficult and our goal is to ensure you are safe and healthy throughout the duration of your trip. We offer comprehensive health services for both adults and children.

We’re ready to help you with such things as:

  • Consultations
  • Vaccinations
  • Medications
  • Advice

During a consultation, we can talk about suggestions for food, sleep pattern adjustments, and even injury prevention.

Vaccinations can include flu shots, Hepatitis A or B, MMR, and more. How will you know what you need? When you make an appointment with us, we will tell you what’s needed based upon what vaccines you’ve already had and where you are traveling. For example, traveling into certain countries in South America and Africa may require certain vaccines to keep you healthy in the event you come into contact with people who have transmitted certain diseases, such as measles or malaria.

If you are prone to certain problems when you travel, such as diarrhea or sea sickness, we can even write prescriptions that you can fill prior to traveling. This way, you can be prepared for anything you may encounter while you travel.

Appointment requests can be made online and when you require travel exams, we have appointments that fit your schedule, no matter how busy it may be. We even offer weekend clinic hours for your convenience.

You don’t want to travel without making an appointment to talk about your health while you are overseas. Our medical staff can help to provide you with peace of mind during the consultation and address any concerns that you may have about what you may come in contact with or any symptoms you may encounter while away from your doctor.

We accept a wide range of insurance at Foster City Medical Center for your convenience. This can reduce your out of pocket expenses so you can get your travel medicine needs handled promptly and affordably.
