Down here in Florida the busy winter season is upon us.  Many of our winter visitors like to go on cruises and safaris that leave from Florida and make stops in exotic places like South America and Africa.  These are beautiful and fascinating destinations but there are also places where Yellow Fever, in addition to other diseases, is endemic.  Many African countries require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination and even some of the cruise lines are requiring Yellow Fever vaccination in order to board their ships.

Passport Health of Sarasota-Bradenton stocked additional Yellow Fever vaccine to meet the expected demand.  We have Yellow Fever vaccines.  Appointments are appreciated but walk-ins are welcome.  Our clients find our convenient, well-health offices to be very comfortable places to receive vaccines.

Passport Health of Sarasota-Bradenton also prepares Yellow Cards for our clients.  The Yellow Card is a written record of all vaccines a patient has received.  Some countries require to see the Yellow Card before they allow a visitor to enter.  Cruise lines are doing the same now with Yellow Cards and Yellow Fever.

For all those travelers out there, please be sure that before you visit any destination outside the US and especially in the third world, that you see a travel health specialist.  These professionals will arm you with all the latest health information regarding your destination and should offer vaccines as well as general well-health products.

Safe travels!
