International Travel

Embarking on an international adventure with your child should be filled with excitement, not worry. At Sun Pediatrics, we ensure your little explorer stays healthy and enjoys a safe and happy trip by offering comprehensive pediatric consultations for international travel.

Why Consult Before You Travel?

International travel exposes children to different climates, environments, and potential health risks. A pre-travel consultation helps you:

  • Identify potential health risks: Based on your destination and planned activities,we assess risks like waterborne diseases, insect-borne illnesses, and altitude sickness.
  • Get appropriate vaccinations: We create a personalized vaccination plan in accordance with CDC guidelines and your child’s age and health history.
  • Receive medication recommendations: Depending on the destination, we might suggest anti-malarial medications or preventive antibiotics.
  • Learn travel precautions: We provide essential information on food and water safety, insect repellents, sun protection, and hygiene practices.
  • Discuss travel-related concerns: We address any anxiety you or your child have regarding the trip and offer practical tips for a smooth experience.

What Happens During a Consultation?

Your consultation involves:

  • Detailed discussion of your travel plans: Destination, duration, activities, and accommodation types.
  • Review of your child’s medical history: Immunization records, allergies, and existing health conditions.
  • Physical examination: To assess overall health and readiness for travel.
  • Personalized recommendations: Tailored to your child’s unique needs and the specific travel risks.
  • Answering your questions and addressing any concerns you might have.

The Importance of Early Planning:

Scheduling your consultation 4-6 weeks before your trip is crucial for:

  • Ensuring sufficient time for necessary vaccinations: Some vaccines require multiple doses spaced over time.
  • Obtaining required documentation: Certain countries may require specific vaccination certificates.
  • Addressing any potential health concerns or delays in treatment.
