Vaccinations for travel are an important part of your travel safety when traveling abroad, especially when traveling to the developing world. Seeing a Travel Medicine Expert is the best way to ensuring safe and enjoyable adventure abroad. Travel immunizations are the first step in this process. We carry in stock all vaccines available in the US, including hard to find vaccines like ORAL/IM Typhoid Vaccine, Japanese Encephalitis Vaccine, Rabies Vaccine and Yellow Fever Vaccine. We also carry Hepatitis A Vaccine, Hepatitis B Vaccine, Hepatitis A/B (Twinrix) Vaccine, Polio Vaccine, Tetanus and Pertussis/Whooping Cough (Td and TDAP) Vaccine, Varicella Vaccine, MMR Vaccine, Zostavax (Shingles) Vaccine, Typhoid Shot Vaccine, Meningococcal Vaccine, Flu Vaccine, Pneumococcal Vaccine and Gardasil (HPV) Vaccine.

We provide Travel Medicine Consultations by reviewing each client’s specific itinerary, previous immunizations, medical history, allergies and contraindications and then offer the following:

      • All appropriate vaccines (based on CDC Guidelines).
      • Draw blood titers in house to prove immunity from previous vaccinations or exposures if requested.
