Check vaccines off your list of travel plans



THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Planning to travel? Be sure to also "pack" a good measure of preventive health with up-to-date vaccinations.

Shazia Gill, M.D., Infectious Diseases, Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital

"Here are some key vaccinations and protections to consider when traveling, especially abroad," explained Shazia Gill, M.D., board-certified infectious diseases specialist with Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital. 

Overall, since most vaccines involve inactive forms (not live vaccines), most side effects such as fever and joint or muscle aches resolve after 24 hours.

Plan to see your physician to discuss these important vaccinations well before you embark on your travel. With a little prevention, you can take measures to stay healthy on your trip. To find a physician near your home or work, call 936.270.3333.
