Are you planning foreign travel with your children? If so, please visit the Centers for Disease Control Travelers website. Click on your destination and you will find a list of immunizations recommended for travel. You will also find a link for malaria outbreaks according to regions you may be visiting. Please refer to this site well in advance, as some vaccines are needed several months prior to travel. Malaria prevention medications should be started 1-2 weeks prior to travel. Once you have this information, please call the office, and let us know country(ies), city(ies), and dates of travel for further assistance.
