How far in advance should I book an appointment?

It is best to book your appointment 6 to 8 weeks in advance.

What can I expect at my appointment?

The consultation will take 30 minutes.
The physician will review, in detail:

  • your itinerary (please ensure you bring a detailed itinerary with you);
  • the type of travel you will be doing
  • what immunizations, if any, you have had in the past¬†10 years
    (please bring your immunization record)
  • brief review of your health, allergies and medications
    (please bring a list of your medications)

You will then see our registered nurse for approximately 15 minutes for any required immunizations.

Will I receive vaccines at the same appointment?

Yes, you will receive all recommended vaccines after your consultation. 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 proper 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.

Does the clinic have vaccines for children?

Yes. The consultation with the physician will help to determine which travel vaccine(s) are needed for your child(ren).

What form of payment does the clinic take?

The clinic accepts all major credit cards, debit, and cash. Receipts are provided with the vaccine DIN number required for you to submit to your health insurance if applicable.

What are the costs of the consult and vaccines?

The consult is $70 per person. Vaccines range anywhere from $35 to $175 per dose.

What about pregnancy?

Some diseases, such as malaria and Zika, can be very serious for the pregnant traveler. Additionally, some vaccines are contraindicated during pregnancy. Specific travel needs for this population will be discussed during the consultation.

Are there special needs for cruise travel?

Cruise travel is very popular and your travel health needs will depend on the destinations or ports of call, as well as any planned excursions. Some cruise lines require proof of certain vaccines. The consultation with the physician will help determine if any vaccine(s) are required and/or if any documentation is mandatory.

What should I bring to my consultation?

Travelers need to bring a detailed itinerary, a list of current medications and documentation of any past immunizations.
