Nothing is worse than feeling sick while you’re away from home.  Traveling to foreign countries exposes you to a plethora of bacteria that can leave you feeling sick and could potentially lead you to seek medical attention.

Whether you are traveling for business, pleasure, or study, our goal at AFC Urgent Care Fairfield is to keep you healthy while traveling abroad. Our physicians and medical staff are trained to provide medical information, medications, and immunizations to help prevent travel-related illness or disease.

Some of the services we provide include:

  • Vaccinations
  • Anti-Malaria
  • Anti-Diarrhea
  • Altitude Sickness
  • Motion Sickness

We recommend that you schedule an appointment 4-6 weeks prior to traveling abroad for all necessary travel medicine and vaccinations. The reason for this is because there are some vaccinations that require multiple doses over an extended period of time.

Students of Fairfield University and Sacred Heart University can receive all of their vaccinations for studying abroad at our convenient location – right down the street from campus! We are located at 1918 Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield, CT.

For additional information on the types of medications and vaccinations we provide for traveling purposes, you can call us at (203) 583-8400, or fill out our questionnaire below!
