Foreign infectious diseases

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

The last thing you are probably thinking about when heading out on vacation is getting sick. Dr. William Ferrar suggests purchasing some special insurance for overseas journeys.

There are foreign infectious diseases that can be a real threat.

Call your health insurance personal representative to see if there is any foreign coverage that can be purchased.

Going to a foreign health clinic to hear the instances of illnesses and injuries in foreign countries is better than just going only to the CDC foreign travel website. HCA has a clinic at Henrico Parham.
