- About short-term foerign travelers
As shown in (Figure 1:219KB), the purpose of almost half customers in our travel clinic is long-term posted overseas and that of only 14% customers is sightseeing. However, we experienced many infectious diseases among patients after return from foreign countries, as in (Table 1:142KB). As shown in (Figure 2:208KB), the approximate 60% length of stay among these patients with infectious diseases was within 2 weeks. Therefore, even short-term foerign travelers occasionally need some kind of vaccinations. If you have any question concerning your travel, please send email ( ).
