Travel Vaccine Shortage
There is currently a national shortage of some common travel vaccines. The vaccines affected by the shortage currently include Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B and Rabies. All of these vaccines are recommended vaccines and not necessarily required vaccines for travel. Information in our consultation will be provided about other methods of prevention to help reduce risk of disease. We regret the inconvenience this manufacturer shortage may cause.
