CASE STUDY: Albert 

Albert Mitchell is a 36-year-old man who will be traveling to Dubai to give a business presentation in

3 months. Although he has traveled widely in the United States as a consultant, this is his first trip to

the Middle East.

He requests information regarding immunizations needed before his trip. Albert states that as he will

be in Dubai for only a few days, he is unlikely to contract a disease in such a short time and

therefore believes that it is illogical to obtain immunizations.

Albert states that he has heard that the side effects of the immunizations might be worse than the

diseases they prevent. He is also concerned about leaving his wife at home alone because she is 6

months pregnant.
