What to Expect at Your Clinic Visit

Vaccines and Prescriptions

Protect against typhoid, hepatitis A and B, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, meningitis, polio and other infections with vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization and other international travel authorities.

We are a designated yellow fever vaccination center and provide prescriptions for malaria, traveler’s diarrhea, jet lag and other travel-related conditions.

Customized Consultations

Your visit will cover:
  • Common health hazards at your destination, including prevention of insect- and water-borne illnesses and other transmittable infections
  • Air travel-related diseases, jet lag, motion and altitude illness, traveler’s diarrhea and more
  • Recent infectious outbreaks, health care standards and availability of health care at your destination
  • Safety and security alerts, safe and unsafe areas, political updates and emergency information

We recommend that you schedule your appointment at least six weeks prior to your departure. Travelers will be accommodated on shorter notice, but there might not be enough time to complete certain immunization series prior to your departure.
