Travel immunizations

Important travel vaccine reminders:

  • Typhoid vaccines require a physicians prescription and is administered at scheduled Immunization clinic times
  • You must call for a phone consultation to assess your travel vaccine needs, and may need to schedule an appointment
  • Please try to schedule an appointment 4 to 6 weeks before your trip because some vaccines have to be given in a series, and it takes time for most vaccines to work
  • If you have less than 4 weeks before your trip, you should call us for a phone consultation; there may be some shots or medications that you will still be able to get depending on your travel area
  • For more information on travel vaccines, please see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Traveler's Health page
