About the Program
Our Travelers' Advice and Immunization Practices provide complete pre-travel medical evaluation, including education about prevention of illness (food and water precautions, mosquito precautions, precautions for altitude sickness) and immunizations and prophylaxis. Immunizations which are available include yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, typhoid, hepatitis A, rabies, meningococcal meningitis, tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis and others. We also offer prophylaxis for malaria and diarrheal diseases. We provide care to adults, children and families.
These practices also serve as full immunization centers for routine and specialty vaccines unrelated to international travel, including vaccines against chicken pox (varicella), zoster (shingles), pneumococcus (pneumonia vaccine), Haemophilus influenzae b (Hib), meningococcus (meningitis vaccine), hepatitis B, rabies (pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis), measles/mumps/rubella, tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis, polio, human papillomavirus (HPV) and others.
Many immunizations require multiple injections and take weeks to reach full effectiveness, so please make your appointment as soon after you make your travel plans as possible.
