FirstHealth's Travel Medicine Clinic provides immunizations and advice for travelers as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through FirstHealth's Infectious Diseases department.
Whether traveling for pleasure or work or embarking on a humanitarian mission, it is vital to make an appointment with a FirstHealth infectious diseases expert prior to leaving. Take advantage of our physicians' expertise to help avoid travel-associated illnesses. In addition to vaccines, our infectious diseases experts will provide information about the prevention and management of health issues associated with international travel and the specific health risks for a person’s country of destination.
There is an ever-growing list of health threats that the international traveler may face, ranging from mosquito-borne infections (including but not limited to malaria and yellow fever) to food- and water-borne diarrheal illnesses. Changes in health risks are closely monitored by the FirstHealth Travel Medicine Clinic staff allowing for up-to-date advice for each traveler.
FirstHealth's Travel Medicine Clinic is located at 35 Memorial Drive in Pinehurst, N.C. To make an appointment, please call (910) 715-7883.
