It is recommended that you schedule your appointment to occur at least four weeks in advance of your trip. If for some reason you are not able to schedule that far in advance, we will still work with you to prepare you for your trip. During your visit, our staff will review your travel itinerary, past medical history, current medications, and immunization history. We’ll make recommendations for any immunizations and medications you may need for your trip. We’ll also provide education about your destinations, including food and water safety, insect avoidance, road safety, and evacuation protocols in case of an emergency. You will leave our clinic with a personalized packet of information related to your trip.

It is recommended that you contact your insurance company in advance of your appointment to check your coverage for travel consultations and travel vaccinations, as not all insurance companies provide full coverage.
