Whether you're traveling for pleasure or business, to study or volunteer, we can be your advisors regarding:

  • Pre-trip health and safety consultations, including travel advisories and disease risk
  • Recommendations and administration of immunizations and vaccines, including the Yellow Fever vaccine, Hepatitis A & B, Typhoid, Meningococcal, Rabies, Japanese B Encephalitis, and other standard immunizations
  • Prevention of travel-related sickness, such as altitude sickness, motion sickness, Malaria Prophylaxis and Travelers' Diarrhea

Scheduling Your Appointment

It's important to schedule your appointment well ahead of your travel, since some immunizations take weeks to build up to full effectiveness. We recommend making your appointment at least six weeks ahead of time, although if that's not possible, we still encourage you to come in as soon as you can.

Insurance

We encourage you to contact your insurance company since coverage of travel medicine services vary.
