SANTA ROSA, Calif., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fall schedules are busy. Add Thanksgiving and travel planning to the mix and one can feel overwhelmed. The advent of seasonal colds and flu strains during the first quarter of the school year adds yet another layer to holiday stress and travel woes. 

But there is good news for the 2015 holiday season. Travelers who have downloaded the free Exigency app to their iPhones will have location, phone numbers and detailed information to access health care resources, from pharmacies to emergency rooms, no matter where they travel in the U.S.

Recently launched by Sonoma County, California - based PreXa Media, the Exigency app makes it possible for travelers and health care consumers to know where help can be found, which services are available 24 hours, or when pharmacies open, for example. For the fastest access to medical supplies or symptom relief options, the app assures they can identify the resource closest to their current location. 

Designed for air and auto travelers to use throughout the year, Exigency has applications to support health during travel throughout the year. Forgotten medications, allergies, mosquito bites and even broken bones are common during travel, especially for those who love the outdoors. The holidays bring many people together from diverse locations putting them at increased health risk of colds and flu from airline travel and seasonal gatherings. 

The Exigency app is available for free at this time. "Our goal is to make travel more comfortable and less worrisome for individuals, families and business travelers," says Samuel Precup, owner of PreXa Media. "It is important for families to be together for the holidays, so this is a way to address health concerns by quickly accessing remedies while traveling."
