Getting the right travel health protection starts by providing the right information.

Seeing a healthcare provider and discussing your travel plans in advance of your trip may help you have more peace of mind throughout your journey.

This Doctor Discussion Guide can help prepare you for your visit so you know what questions you should ask, what questions may be asked of you, and what information, like your travel itinerary, may be helpful to bring with you. Keep in mind, some doctors are more experienced in travel health than others, so be sure to ask before you make an appointment.
