When traveling outside the United States, you can be at greater risk for tropical and infectious diseases. Most of these diseases are preventable with travel vaccines that can help protect you. Dr. Daniel Benhuri offers travel vaccines for families throughout the Beverly Hills area in California.
What to Expect
The travel vaccines you will need will depend on where you are traveling and your length of stay. Multiple doses may be required over a period of several weeks or months. If you are planning to travel, you may want to consult with a doctor as soon as possible. You may want to seek vaccines at least six weeks prior to your departure to allow for plenty of time. Individuals with immune system issues may have special recommendations differing from those given to healthy individuals.
A consultation may be required to determine the travel vaccines you need. During this appointment, the doctor may review your medical history and perform a physical examination. You may want to inquire about being up-to-date on routine immunizations during your appointment. This can help determine a comprehensive plan to suit your unique needs. Some of the vaccines offered by Dr. Daniel Benhuri in Beverly Hills may include:
- Hepatitis Vaccines
- Influenza Shots
- Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis Booster
Ideal Candidates for Travel Vaccines
Most healthy adults are eligible to receive travel vaccines. You may not be an ideal candidate if you have a compromised immune system or are allergic to certain components in the vaccine. These immunizations may interfere with specific medications. Dr. Benhuri may be able to recommend alternative options, along with preventive measures you can take while traveling. If you are unable to receive travel vaccines, you may receive a waiver you can present to border authorities.
