CDC promotes healthy travel at the New York Times Travel Show. Stefanie Erskine, M.P.H. shares 5 healthy travel tips in the short video above.
Staying healthy on the road does not have to be a daunting task. Many travelers set out on a destination and often fail to check the entry and exit requirements when traveling abroad.
Just as important as the visa requirements for visiting a foreign country is the maintenance of your health.
Disease and illness can spread rapidly. It is necessary to protect yourself and prevent disease to the extinct you can while traveling.
CDC promotes healthy travel and has a wealth of resources available to you online and via their travel apps.
One feature I personally love about their travel apps is the ability to customize trips for destination specific recommendations.
The TravWell app offers a checklist of recommended vaccinations and even builds a packing list for your trip.
You can store important travel docs, keep up with medications, and set reminders to take your meds while traveling.
It is so important to make sure you have the necessary vaccinations before traveling to another country or destination.
Not only can not having the right or any vaccinations ruin your trip due to illness, you may not be able to enter the country at all without proof of immunizations.
Additionally, the CDC offers an app to check whether or not you should eat certain foods called Can I Eat This! If you’ve ever had travelers diarrhea, you’ll want to have this handy app available to help you make smart decisions along the way.CDC promotes healthy travel in 5 easy steps so you can stay healthy while traveling!
