Travel Clinic: If you are planning a trip, you need to protect yourself against diseases that are more common in the country or city you are visiting. Our travel clinic offers the latest health information and vaccinations needed for travel outside the United States.
Travel immunizations are available for adults and children > 9 months of age. Travelers should start vaccinations 4-6 weeks before traveling. To be sure you receive the best protection against disease, it is important to share all your travel destinations and immunization records with the travel clinic staff. The recommended vaccines will depend on your location of travel and immunization history.
What to expect during your visit:
Upon arrival, you will be asked to complete registration forms. Once you meet with the travel clinic nurse, you will be given a personalized, computer-generated travel portfolio. The travel clinic nurse will evaluate your medical history, review your immunization records and travel itinerary, and discuss with you what vaccines are recommended/required for your trip. Please plan for at least a 30 minute visit with the nurse.
Malaria tablets and oral typhoid capsules are only available by prescription from a physician. The travel clinic does not provide tablets or prescriptions for these medications. However, during your visit, the travel clinic nurse can provide you with information on the type of malaria tablets you may need, based on your travel destination.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) offers information on immunizations and personal health protection measures for travelers to any part of the word.
