      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Familiarity with a good, frequently updated online resource pays huge efficiency dividends in the time-consuming and complex task of pre-travel counseling.

      2. "Visiting family/friends" is a substantial risk factor for travel-related illness.

      3. Hepatitis A, typhoid vaccine, Cipro prn, counseling on food/water safety and insect precautions, +/- malaria chemoprophylaxis will cover 80% of your patients' travel needs, and can all be done from the comfort of a primary care practice.

      4. A need for yellow fever vaccine, pregnancy, or immunosuppressed status are great reasons for referral to travel clinic!
