As the world becomes a "global village," more travel from the U.S. to developing countries in Asia, Africa and South America is increasing the number of people at risk for a variety of infectious diseases. As a precaution, Lawrence Memorial Hospital of Medford (LMH) offers the Travelers' Health Service. Here, an infectious diseases specialist provides a comprehensive service with individualized counseling on necessary precautions, immunizations, medications, and medical care for travel-related illnesses.

After a visit to the LMH specialist, travelers are armed with the latest information from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) about emerging and well-known disease agents worldwide. A visit to the LMH Travelers' Health Service can substantially reduce the risk of contracting diseases or illnesses, which may be prevented with advance immunization, preventive medicine and education.

Immunizations available are:

  • Polio
  • Typhoid fever
  • Hepatitis A & B
  • Yellow fever
  • JEV (Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine)
  • Chicken pox
  • Tetanus, diphtheria
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
