Travel Exams

Access Omnicare provides medical consultation for employees traveling for business. Our clinicians review the travel itinerary and refer to the most current databases, including the CDC, to determine infectious risks associated with that itinerary. Employees will be provided recommendations and immunizations based on their personal medical history and risk of illness with travel, vaccination history, destination, and likelihood of exposure to pathogens while working abroad. Country-specific entry requirements such as proof of vaccination for yellow fever also impact immunization recommendations or the provision of medical documentation excusing vaccination due to an allergy or other medical contraindication. Since most vaccinations need several weeks after administration to achieve optimal protection against infection, early consultation is advised. “Last minute” vaccinations still provide some protection and are preferable to entirely missing vaccination.
