The experience of international travel can be very gratifying. But illness, visits to the doctor, and disability should not be part of travel.

Through the administration of vaccines, the prescribing of prophylactic medications, and by providing disease-prevention education, clinicians can help assure their pediatric travelers and their families will have an enjoyable and rewarding travel experience.
