Thread: Flu Season 2018-2019: Time for your immunization!

  1. #11
    This has nothing to do with flu immunizations.

    The CDC has recommendations for immunizations when traveling outside the USA for diseases such as typhus, typhoid, yellow fever, etc. based on the specific country and area within the country you will be visiting. I also strongly recommend attending a travelers' clinic where they can determine your risk factors and prescribe any precautions, medications, or immunizations needed, based on where you will be visiting.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    Talk to your doctor or health department. while travel vaccines are not the topic of this thread it is easy to find out what is recommended for whatever country you plan to visit.

    Very tough to avoid all diseases.... possibly look into that country's current issues, and if possible, any immunizations to protect against.

    My first year getting the flu shot... glad I did. Actually got through the season with relatively little amounts of issues, especially compared to last year, which was a nightmare....

    Much recommended.
