Pre-travel consultations

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is preparing his patients to travel.

Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss appropriate vaccinations and precautions that should be taken prior to leaving.

There are many conditions in other countries that you could be at risk for.

Try to schedule this visit at least a month or more ahead of your trip because it takes several weeks for some vaccines to give you the required protection needed for the trip.
