Summer months bring travel, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has great tips for helping you stay safe and healthy on the go.
If you're traveling outside the United States, consider visiting or contacting your primary care physician before departing for any relevant guidance. Don't forget your Flexible Spending Account may be used for doctor copays. Planning for possible illnesses and injuries during your trip may be the best travel plans that you make.
