Health Tip: Have a Fun and Safe Vacation

-- Nothing can ruin a summer vacation faster than an unexpected trip to the hospital.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration offers these suggestions for a healthier vacation:

  • Avoid tanning or spending too much time in the sun.
  • Check your medications before you leave to make sure you have enough.
  • Never pack medication in checked luggage.
  • If you wear contacts, always use clean hands when putting them in. Travel with a spare pair, just in case.
  • Avoid tattoo parlors, particularly while in other countries that probably have different safety standards.
  • Drink enough clean water and eat healthy foods.
