When traveling for the holidays, it is critical that you take the necessary preventative measures to avoid getting infected. Getting your vaccinations or booster doses is a great way to safely avoid serious illness. Dr. Peter Hotez, Dean of the school of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, stated that even before the holiday season, parts of the country are reporting increased hospitalizations and deaths. Getting the booster shot and vaccine is so vital especially during this season. So, travel safely and responsibly.
