Travel Vaccinations & Medicine in Bedford, MA

There are many different reasons why people travel abroad.  Companies require trips to out-of-country headquarters, students enroll in study abroad programs, or some simply want a sense of adventure.  Traveling to a new country exposes you to a culture filled with interesting people, jaw-dropping tourist attractions, and authentic cuisines.   The last thing you’d want to be exposed to is a travel-related illness or infection.

Depending on what country you’re visiting, you may get exposed to illnesses or infections that you wouldn’t normally be exposed to at home.  Some countries require visitors to be vaccinated before entering the country. This is especially true for countries in Africa and South America, as it’s highly recommended that you receive a yellow fever vaccination prior to visiting countries in these continents.

At AFC Urgent Care Bedford, we provide vaccinations and medicine including:

  • Anti-Malaria
  • Motion-Sickness
  • Altitude-Sickness
  • & More!

We recommend visiting our urgent care center at least four weeks prior to your trip, as some vaccinations require several doses.  However, we do accommodate last-minute travelers.  Be sure to consult with your health insurance to be sure you are covered.  We also provide low-cost medicine and vaccinations for self-pay patients.
