Travel Health Services & Travel Health Vaccinations
It is imperative to be properly immunized (travel health vaccinations) when traveling abroad. For preventive medical care no matter where you're headed, I offer travel health services and I am ready to help. I will review your itinerary and medical history, provide the necessary vaccinations and prescriptions, and give you advice for staying healthy throughout your trip.
You should plan to see me six (6) weeks before your departure to allow ample time for vaccinations, but I also offers last-minute travel support for spur-of-the-moment travelers looking for travel health services and/or travel health vaccinations.
Certain travel health vaccinations, including those against rabies and Japanese encephalitis, are only available at specialized travel clinics. I will help you determine whether you need any of these vaccines and direct you to the appropriate clinic.
Note: Travelers to equatorial Africa and parts of South America will require proof of vaccination against yellow fever. For more details, visit the CDC travel website.
