Travel Health Nurses Are Asking - our bimonthly response to member questions

In response to frequent requests from ATHNA members, this month the Board initiates a biweekly Q&A. Unlike our blog TravelBytes which explores a topic in greater depth, this feature will address simple questions with straightforward answers. Select references will provide further explanation. Questions will address immunizations, health counseling, administrative issues, and more. New questions will be posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and old questions archived. If you have a question you would like answered in this simple format, please send it to info@athna.org.
