Travel Medicine Overview
At Family Medicine Associates of Texas, we pride ourselves in offering not only local medical care but travel medicine as well. If you are preparing to travel out of town, state, or country, and are in need of trusted medical care, we can connect you with clinics that are conveniently located near you. In Carrollton, TX, our board-certified medical physicians will also provide you with the necessary information and immunizations that you will need to make your travels safer and more comfortable. Aside from immunizations and various vaccinations, we will also equip you with the proper tools and instruction on preventative insect disease care. When most patients travel, sometimes they forget that not all sources of water are safe to drink. Our staff can also educate you on water safety as well. Traveling is an exciting adventure, but don't forget to be safe and well prepared.

Travel Medicine Services
Our family practice is prepared and more than happy to help you prepare for your travels. Especially when it comes to protecting you from potentially harmful insect transmitting diseases and destination-specific health conditions. Our overall goal is to properly inform you and provide you with the health care you need for safe travel. Below are the following services we offer:
Immunizations & Vaccinations
Immunizations are injections that protect you from harmful diseases. Typically, during your yearly well-exam, your doctor will discuss these with you. It's important to stay up-to-date and regularly receive immunizations to protect yourself from illnesses. Vaccinations are injections that provide protection as well by providing your body with immunity against specific organisms. By protecting yourself, you are also protecting others and your local community from harmful pathogens and diseases as well.
Consults & Recommendations
Our doctors are readily available to assist you with your travels by consulting with you on all the health information you will need to know for your trip. We will also provide you with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations as well. The CDC is a federal agency that organizes and manages preventive health care and preparedness in the United States. Heeding their professional medical advice is recommended, especially when preparing for international travel.
