Passport Health is Seeing Relief Workers for Japanese Tsunami

I know you have all seen the footage, but its hard to stop watching the amazing and frightening power of mother nature when the tsunami hits land, destroying everything in its path. Here at Passport Health we have begun to see relief crews who are on their way to aid in the efforts in Japan.

If you are planning to travel to Japan, make sure you are vaccinated. You will want to be up to date on Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (tdap), Hepatitis A & B, Flu and Pneumonia.  It is still early spring and was actually snowing in japan on the day the tsunami hit, so be sure to prepare for cold temperatures.  Food, water and sanitation issues are wide spread so bringing portable water purifiers, diarrhea treatment & prevention kits and first aid kits is highly recommended.

Our thoughts are with all of those effected by the devastation in Japan and our hearts go out to all those who are sacrificing of themselves to help.
