At the Family Travel Medicine Center at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, we provide personalized care and medical recommendations for you and your family based on your specific travel destination. Our goal is to ensure that you receive appropriate immunizations and preventive medications, as well as information you need to help prevent illness and injuries during your trip abroad.
Your visit to the Family Travel Medicine Center includes a comprehensive health assessment that takes into consideration your immunization history, current medications, and overall health. Together, we discuss potential risks, such as infectious diseases, safe food and beverages, contact with animals and insects, and high altitudes.
We prepare you to handle symptoms that can arise when traveling abroad, and can advise you on who to contact in case of an emergency. We also address any specific health concerns you may have, such as asthma in children and adults, or seasonal and food allergies. Upon your return, we can evaluate children who experienced fever, flu-like symptoms, skin infections, or other post-travel–related illness.

A child’s immune system is still maturing, which can make them more susceptible to certain diseases. Children also have different behaviors and health risks. Vaccine recommendations and preventive medications for children are usually different than for adults.
