Dear Families,

We are reaching out in anticipation that many of you are planning Spring Break travel. We would like to offer you the following advice to help your family prepare for health issues during your travels:

  • Prepare a travel health kit with essential items: including any PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS, nasal saline, a thermometer, fever-reducing medicines (like acetaminophen and ibuprofen), sunscreen, Band-Aids, and electrolyte solutions. 

  • Prescription medications: Don't forget to pack any prescription medications your child regularly takes. Due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to send prescriptions outside of the District of Columbia. 

  • Research local urgent care and emergency room options at your destination. In case of any health concerns, you will need to be seen by a local healthcare provider. The doctors at Foxhall Pediatrics are not able to do Telehealth appointments for patients who are not located in Washington, DC.

  • If you're traveling internationally, please check the CDC website to see if vaccines or other prescription medications are recommended for your destination. If so, we recommend that you schedule an appointment with a travel clinic at least two weeks before your trip. 


Here is the link for your convenience:

If you have any further questions or concerns regarding your travel health or need to schedule an appointment before your trip, please don't hesitate to contact our office.


We wish you a safe, healthy, and enjoyable Spring Break!


Drs. Sweeney, Daniel and Agama, and the Foxhall Pediatrics Team
