Yes, you can receive all the vaccine(s) recommended or required after the consult. If you wish to return on another day you can do so provided the timing of your departure allows for this. Some vaccines require more than one dose in order to provide protection.

What vaccines will I receive?

Travel vaccines can be grouped into routine, recommended and required. The consult with the physician will help to determine which vaccines are needed for your trip. Some vaccines are a 2 to 3 dose series while others are a single dose. Again, please bring your immunization record with you to your appointment.
