Travel Medicine in Jackson Hole

Stay Healthy No Matter Where You Go in the World

The way our bodies develop is heavily shaped by the environment we grow up in. You are exposed to thousands of germs and bacteria every day and these are the invaders your immune system is used to fighting. In leaving your home territory, you are potentially exposing your body to germs it has never encountered before, and you need to be prepared.

St. John’s Health offers travel medicine services for those planning to travel abroad, visitors to our country, and people who have recently returned from a long distance trip.

Benefits of Seeing a Travel Doctor

Travel medicine experts must be familiar with common illness and conditions that affect people all over the world. It is extremely important that you receive immunizations before international travel, and a travel doctor will have in-depth knowledge of what preventative care will be most effective for your destination.

Conditions that commonly affect international travelers include:

  • Malaria
  • Tuberculosis
  • Yellow fever
  • Hepatitis
  • Tetanus
  • Influenza
  • Rabies

In addition to medical treatment and prevention, many travel doctors can provide insight on some of the hazards and challenges travelers frequently encounter like crime and legal concerns. A travel doctor can be an excellent source of information on the culture you are about to experience.

Follow-Up When You Come Home

Even if you feel fine after your trip, it is a good idea to schedule another appointment with a travel doctor for a physical. Not all conditions manifest immediately, and you may have picked something up without realizing it. A travel doctor should be familiar with conditions of other countries that your primary care provider can overlook.
