Why schedule a consultation before your trip?

  • Millions of US residents travel abroad each year, but only a few receive the recommended immunizations prior to departure!
    • Receiving recommended immunizations will help keep you and your travel companions healthy during your trip.
  • Our specially trained pharmacists can help you prepare for an upcoming trip by reviewing your travel itinerary and providing personalized recommendations based on your destinations.
    • Our pharmacies use a database that is updated daily with information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
  • In-depth travel consultations are also available for $35 per session.
    • We recommend a one-on-one consultation if you are a novice international traveler, if you are traveling to rural or remote areas, or if you will be traveling for at least 14 days.
  • We accept most major insurance plans and offer competitive pricing with other local pharmacies, physician offices, and health departments.
    • Many preventative vaccines are covered by prescription insurance plans, but some travel vaccines are not. We will attempt to bill all recommended vaccines and provide you with a price quote before you receive the service.

Who should have a travel consultation?

  • We serve all types of patients!
    • Individuals and families
    • Mission trip volunteers
    • Students traveling or studying abroad
    • Routine vaccinations
  • Consultations and vaccinations are available by appointment.

When should I schedule my appointment?

  • We recommend scheduling your personal consultation as soon as your travel itinerary is set.
    • Although most vaccines become effective in one to two weeks, some require multiple doses and up to six months to be fully effective!
    • Most travelers should have a consultation at least 4 to 6 weeks before departure.
