Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you get your travel medical information?
We subscribe to several different services which send daily alerts to us about disease outbreaks and other health/security risks around the world. The World Health Organization and Center for Disease Control are resources we continually use. From our research on your particular trip we can print you out a customized brochure that is itinerary specific. If you complete our Questionnaire, we will begin planning for your trip before your appointment.
What is the difference between "recommended" and "required" vaccines?
Recommended vaccines are for your protection. We will discuss with you up-to-date recommendations for your destination, based on the type of trip and length of travel. Vaccine requirements are determined by the country you are traveling to. The purpose of the requirement is to prevent you (the traveler) from bringing disease into their country. Upon arrival you will be asked to show proof of the specific vaccinations which are required.
How long before my trip should I plan on getting vaccinations?
For maximum protection, the CDC recommends that you take care of your travel vaccinations 4-6 weeks prior to departure. If you didn’t have time, or are making last-minute plans, you can still benefit from having vaccines closer to your departure date. Required vaccines, such as Yellow Fever, may be administered “last minute” as long as you can show proof at immigration desk at your destination.
I am taking my family with me on my trip. Are you able to give vaccines to young children?
Yes! Children require special consideration for travel risks. Because we see babies and older kids in our practice, we are prepared to help you with your children’s travel needs. We just ask that you bring in their immunization records with you so that we don’t repeat any vaccines they’ve had.
Does my insurance cover vaccines and medicines for foreign travel?
It is unlikely that your insurance company will cover the cost of travel vaccines. But you can give them a call to check. We, however, do not participate with insurance companies, so you would have to pay us directly, and then submit a bill we provide to your insurance company.
What forms of payment do you accept?  

- Debit cards
- Credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard)
- Checks
- Cash

Is there anything that I need to bring to the appointment?
Your immunization record if you have it.
