To get the latest updates and advice on a myriad of travel health topics, I was joined by nurse practitioner and President and CEO of Passport Health of Tampa, Dr. Duellyn Pandis on the Outbreak News This Week Radio Show.
We discussed several travel destinations and the travel issues and advice for each. Dr. Pandis went over in detail the issue with the yellow fever vaccine shortage and the alternatives.
In addition, prevention of mosquito bites and the numerous diseases you can contract during travel was emphasized.
Dr. Pandis also discussed the work of Passport Health of Tampa and what a typical travel consultation would be like.
