Note: Your doctor or health-care provider will determine what you will need, depending on factors such as your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, and planned activities. To have the most benefit, see a health-care provider at least 4–6 weeks before your trip to allow time for your vaccines to take effect and to start taking medicine to prevent malaria, if you need it. Even if you have less than 4 weeks before you leave, you should still see a health-care provider for needed vaccines, anti-malaria drugs and other medications and information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while traveling. Recommended Immunizations: • Update routine shots such as measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT) vaccine, poliovirus vaccine, influenza, chicken pox, etc. • Hepatitis A • Hepatitis B • Typhoid Malaria Information: The Wake County Human Services Travel Nurse does not recommend antimalarial medication for individuals traveling to San Jose, Costa Rica. As a general precaution, however, travelers to Costa Rica should use insect repellent and wear long pants and sleeves, especially during the hours of dawn and dusk, to prevent mosquito bites. Though your regular doctor or health-care provider will likely be able to provide routine and Hep A/B immunizations and may be able to provide travel immunizations, the CDC recommends that you see a health-care provider who specializes in Travel Medicine. For travel immunizations and medications, make an appointment with- Wake County Human Services Public Health Center (Clinic E) 10 Sunnybrook Road, Raleigh Call 919-250-3900 to make an appointment. M-F by appt only from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. Concentra Urgent Care – Shiloh Crossing 4104 Surles Court Ste. 11 Durham, NC 27703 919-941-1911 M-F 7:30am-8:00pm and Sat-Sun 10:00am-4:00pm NOTE: CALL clinic of choice to make an appointment and confirm the services available as well as prices. Prices vary depending on individual needs and provider. Health insurance usually does not cover travel immunizations and medications, but you should check with your insurance provider. NOTE: OTHER MEDICATIONS YOU MAY NEED • The prescription medicines you take every day. Make sure you have enough to last during your trip. Keep them in their original prescription bottles and always in your carry-on luggage. Be sure to follow security guidelines, if the medicines are liquids. • Medicine for diarrhea, usually over-the-counter. • If you wear glasses or contact lenses you should take an extra pair, as well as a copy of your prescription. NOTE: OTHER ITEMS YOU MAY NEED • Iodine tablets and portable water filters to purify water if bottled water is not available. • Sunblock and sunglasses for protection from harmful effects of UV sun rays. • Antibacterial hand wipes or alcohol-based hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol. • To prevent insect/mosquito bites, bring: o Lightweight long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and a hat to wear outside, whenever possible. o Insect repellent with at least 30% DEET. o Flying-insect spray to help clear rooms of mosquitoes. The product should contain a pyrethroid insecticide; these insecticides quickly kill flying insects, including mosquitoes. o Bed nets treated with permethrin, if you will not be sleeping in an air-conditioned or well-screened room and will be in malaria-risk areas. For use and purchasing information, see Insecticide Treated Bed Nets on the CDC malaria site. Overseas, permethrin or another insecticide, deltamethrin, may be purchased to treat bed nets and clothes.
