Travel Vaccines We Administer On-Site

Travel vaccines are recommended to protect you in foreign areas where there is a high risk for contracting certain illnesses, and where you might not get the same standards of healthcare as you have here in the US. That’s why you don’t want to take chances when you travel.

Additionally, certain types of vaccines are essentially required by many countries, or you will be refused entry or be required to undergo the necessary vaccination(s) at the border. Such at-border vaccinations do not effectively eliminate your risk of contracting a virus, as most vaccines take a certain amount of time to prep-up your immune system in fighting against that virus. As a result, they turn out to be ineffective and unnecessary, especially if your return is within only a couple of days.

To help you with all your vaccination needs, we administer the following in-house travel vaccinations at our clinic:

Note: Currently, we are not administering the Yellow Fever vaccine on-site.

Travel Medicine & Vaccination FAQs

Travel medicine is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and management of health problems of international travelers. It also provides precautions you should take while traveling, advice on administering the required vaccines, necessary preventative medicines, and measures against certain diseases, and helps patients with underlying medical conditions to travel safely.

The common illnesses that you can get from overseas travel, especially when traveling to tropical countries:

  • Measles
  • Infectious diarrhea
  • Typhoid
  • Malaria
  • Tetanus
  • Yellow fever
  • Tick-borne encephalitis
  • Japanese B encephalitis

The following factors are considered by your travel specialist to devise your travel care plan:

  • The destination(s) of your journey
  • Your age, current health, and medical history
  • The length of your trip
  • The record of your seasonal vaccinations
  • Activities you have planned (camping, hiking, rafting, safari, humanitarian aid, etc.)

Travel medicine services have many advantages as they protect you from these potential problems:

  • If you become ill, you will be kept in isolation and can’t enjoy your trip.
  • When you get sick, you not only cause risk to yourself but also to other travelers and the local community.
  • When you get infected, you bring back the infection with you, which can affect your family, friends, and the community.
  • Without vaccination certificates, many countries will send you back home at your own expense.

You need to book your travel medicine appointment weeks earlier as it requires time for any vaccine to take effect and protect you.

Our travel care services are totally cash-based. However, we will provide an itemized receipt that patients can submit with their insurers for claiming purposes.
