travel medicine - before visiting the doctor

Before visiting the doctor

Before visiting the travel doctor, it is important to prepare information to optimally prepare the traveller for the trip in terms of health:

  • The exact itinerary,
  • The date and nature of the trip (holiday, work, research),
  • Planned elements of active tourism (mountaineering, diving, cave visits, animal hunting),
  • The age of the traveller (this applies especially to children),
  • Recent illnesses and any chronic conditions,
  • List of medications taken on a regular basis,
  • Previous vaccination history (bring your vaccination booklet),
  • Antimalarial drugs used in the past,
  • Allergies to medicines, egg white (an ingredient in many vaccines) or other substances,
  • Pregnancy or planned breastfeeding during travel,
  • Immune disorders in the traveller - related to chronic illnesses or medication,
