Before You Travel
It is important to note that all visits to the clinic are by appointment only. Travelers should contact the clinic at least 6-8 weeks before departure as some immunizations require a series of injections. It takes time for antibodies to rise to the most optimum level for immunity.
We also have two tropical medicine trained physicians who can consult with and assist you if you pick up an illness while visiting another country.
Referral from your physician is not necessary to receive a consultation. Travel Clinic consultations cost $50 per patient. We will gladly send immunization costs to insurance; however, other costs must be covered by the patient. Many insurance plans will pay for routine vaccinations.
Even if you are not traveling, it may be necessary to receive vaccinations for work or other reasons. These vaccines include rabies pre-exposure, Tuberculosis tests, or simply staying up to date with immunizations.
Anyone who experiences a fever and illness post-travel should let their physician know or contact the hospital for further instructions. Patients seeking care at their physician’s office or at the hospital should let their physician know that they have been out of the country.
