Ready to Travel? Prepare yourself and your family now!

Typhoid fever is a life-threatening illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi which affects 21.5 million people each year. Most cases are acquired while traveling internationally in the developing world. You can get typhoid fever if you eat food or drink beverages that have been contaminated. The infection is common in areas of the world where water is likely to be contaminated with sewage. If you are traveling to a country where typhoid is common, you should consider being vaccinated against typhoid.


It is recommended to vaccinate 1-2 weeks prior to possible exposure. The vaccine will last for approximately 3 years.

You can receive your Typhoid vaccine here at the American Clinic Tokyo. Currently, the following product is in stock: SANOFI PASTEUR’S TYPHOID VACCINE, TYPHIM VI®


Mycoplasma pneumoniae

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a leading cause of respiratory infections, including “walking pneumonia.” There has been an outbreak in Tokyo and a large number of patients have been observed this season. This outbreak can continue and can also be recurrent. Common symptoms are, cough, throat pain, nasal discharge, ear pain and breathing difficulty. Diagnostic testing (rapid immunochromatographic antigen test) is not routinely performed so many patients can go unrecognized for long periods of time. Commonly used antibiotics may not be effective. Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections can be difficult to diagnose and treat, so be sure to discuss treatment strategies with your physician.

Mosquito Bite Prevention

Mosquitoes spread many types of viruses and parasites like Japanese encephalitis, chikungunya, dengue, Zika, and malaria. If you are traveling to an area where mosquitoes are active, be sure to protect yourself and your family from the most deadliest creature on the planet. It has been estimated that mosquitos transmit diseases to almost 700 million people annually resulting in 2 to 3 million deaths every year. The following travel tips from CDC can save your life. A must read before you travel!
