And you may need to receive vaccines and a refill on your prescriptions before your departure. Use this checklist to learn what steps you should take now to stay healthy on your vacation.

Don’t just plan a vacation; plan to stay healthy on vacation. Make an appointment with your primary care physician to get required vaccinations, prescription refills, and general health recommendations before you travel.
