Make sure you are protected. International travel may put you at risk for infections that you might not ordinarily be exposed to, i.e. yellow fever, malaria, typhoid fever, Hepatitis A, etc.
To locate a clinic offering a new, alternative yellow fever vaccine, visit the CDC.
Call for a consultation to review your immunization status and customize a plan to reduce your risks. Be informed about your destination. Know how to access travel alerts.
Give yourself some time, more than eight weeks, to prepare. Some vaccinations have to be spaced at different intervals. Adults and children need to be up-to-date on routine immunizations for adequate protection.
What is included?
Destination review and purpose of travel (sightseeing, work team, digging ditches?)
Assessment of medical history and current medications (indicates any contraindications or risks with vaccines)
