RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - We are in the height of vacation season and before you head out on the road make sure all your medical concerns are in order.

We have a few examples in this weeks Neighborhood Health Watch.

Lauren Richardson in the fan has some travel tips.

Check your medication supply at least a week before you depart to make sure you have enough pills to last you through your trip.

If you are traveling internationally make sure to check for vaccination requirements and recommendations.

If you are traveling on an airplane for an extended period of time be sure to stay well hydrated and stretch your legs and arms at least once an hour to prevent blood clots.
