Note: Travel immunizations are not covered by insurance. We accept Mastercard and Visa.

Protect yourself against illness
so that you can enjoy your trip

Authorized and licensed by the federal government as an official international vaccination site, we provide vaccines, primary care and public health information to adults and children who will be traveling outside the United States. Diseases that have been eradicated in the United States are still active in certain countries, and the water supply is not always safe for drinking. Fortunately, people can take steps to protect themselves against illness when they travel.

We give each person a destination-specific travel package of medical information as well as travel alerts and telephone numbers of local-area medical providers. Completing a recommended immunization plan before departure is the most important step you can take to prevent travel-related diseases. We provide all necessary vaccinations for international travel, including Tetanus Toxoid, Hepatitis A and Typhoid. We help you to plan your trip to allow the appropriate amount of time for all the immunizations you may require.

We offer medical examinations to all patients before and after a trip; physician referrals are not required. In addition, we provide comprehensive medical care for patients who become ill during their trip.
