Travel Medicine in Andover, MA
Our board-certified physicians and medical providers can give you a full travel consultation on site. This will allow you to know what to look out for on your travels, what medicines to bring from home, and what immunizations you should receive before leaving.
Whether you are going for a short vacation or for a few months, it is recommended to get updated vaccines. This is due to other countries having illnesses that are not seen in the United States, so our bodies do not have antibodies to fight it off.
