Summer Travel Safety and Your Medicines

Summer Medications

Summer travel can be a fun and relaxing time – until a medication emergency occurs. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides guidance for travelers who need to obtain medication when away from home – especially when traveling internationally. It is important to purchase medicines only from licensed pharmacies, check that the medication is in the original packaging, and get a receipt. Travelers should also be aware of the latest safety precautions for minimizing exposure to infectious diseases – including Zika.
