Travel Vaccines and Medicine

Medical preparation for travel is increasingly important. Not only are there more serious health risks present around the world these days, but there is more available for prevention and treatment, so not to worry. Prevention should not be overlooked by any overseas traveler, regardless of travel-vaccines-afc-urgent-care-danburydestination however. All 3 of our AFC Urgent Care Danbury centers offer vaccines for many types of diseases. To expedite your care, we have set up an on-line questionnaire for you to complete prior to your visit. We will then customize an immunization program for you based on the information you provide and can help you assemble the medications and administer the vaccinations needed to keep you safe while overseas.

Our comprehensive travel medicine program includes a number of healthcare services including the following travel vaccines and medicine:

  • Medical Screening and Assessment
  • Medicines for malaria, diarrhea, motion sickness, & altitude sickness
