If you’re planning a trip abroad, be sure to add a visit to our travel clinic to your itinerary. Our doctors will review your medical history and travel plans to make sure that you have everything you need to stay healthy and safe on your trip.
Our care team will discuss your destination(s) with you in detail, including:
Some immunizations and preventive medications need to be taken months before your plane leaves the ground. Please schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
Preparing for your visit
Please bring the following items to your appointment:
If possible, please download and fill out the two forms below. If you unable to do this, please arrive 20 minutes early to your appointment to fill out the forms in person.
*If you do not have insurance, a $75 fee will be collected at check-in. This fee will be deducted from the total cost of your visit.
When should I schedule my Travel Clinic appointment?
Ideally, you should visit us 4-8 weeks prior to your departure date, as some vaccinations and preventive medications need to be taken several weeks or even months before your trip. However, if you do not have much time before you leave, you should still make an appointment. We can provide you with helpful information about your destination and may still be able to start any vaccination and/or medication regimens.
Am I required to have a consultation, or can I just come in for some vaccinations?
The consultation is a required part of your travel clinic appointment. This is to ensure you receive all the education and medical attention necessary for a well-informed and safe trip. It is important, especially when traveling internationally, that all chronic health conditions are addressed and preparations made for you to feel safe and comfortable during your travels.
How long does the appointment last?
Plan to spend one hour at the clinic for your initial appointment. If you are making an appointment for a group of people traveling to the same destination, we may need more time to cover everything. Follow-up appointments for any additional vaccinations are usually 15 minutes long.
Do I need to know which vaccinations are required or recommended for my trip?
You are not responsible for knowing which vaccinations will be required/recommended for your trip. However, if you are interested in learning more or have questions before your appointment, you can visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website or call them at 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636).
What will my visit cost?
