Hen House Travel Clinic

In 2006, more than 63.6 million US residents traveled to international destinations. Only a small percentage of those travelers received needed vaccinations. All of these travelers could have benefited from pre-travel health information. So why should you schedule a pre-travel health consultation before your business trip or vacation? Our goal is to prepare you for healthy international travel. Our travel medicine trained pharmacists can look at your travel locations and make recommendations of required, recommended, and routine vaccinations. We offer all of our travel vaccines with no office visit or administration fee that you would incur if you utilized a physician based service. Our pharmacists will bill your insurance so you are aware of the out-of-pocket expenses before you receive the vaccine! We also offer in-depth travel counseling session for $35 which is recommended for novice travelers, people traveling to rural areas, or people traveling for a period longer than two weeks.

Reasons to schedule a pre-travel health consultation:

Vaccines

Hen House Travel Clinic utilizes a database that is updated with information from the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control. At your pre-travel health consultation, a specially trained pharmacist will suggest vaccinations based on your destinations. A wide range of vaccines are available:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Twinrix (Hep A and B combo)
  • Influenza
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Meningococcal
  • Pneumococcal
  • Polio booster
  • Rabies (pre and post exposure)
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria
  • Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis
  • Typhoid Fever
  • Yellow Fever (state-certified)

Medications

Certain diseases are not vaccine-preventable but instead require prescription medications for prevention. Examples are traveler’s diarrhea, malaria, and altitude prevention. Anti-malarial medications and preventive measures are important components of pre-travel health consultations. We will contact your physician for appropriate prescriptions.

Information

A travel health specialist can provide you with relevant information based on your travel destinations. Information about malaria and dengue fever prevention, food and water-borne illnesses, parasitic infection prevention, and general preventive health are key topics during a pre-travel health consultation. Remember that not all websites have reliable information for travelers.

Supplies

Over-the-counter medications, sunscreen, travel-sized products, and first aid kits are only some of the travel supplies that may be needed for your trip. A travel health specialist can recommend additional products such as insect repellant, mosquito netting, or water purification tablets depending on your destinations.

Appointments

It is best to start thinking about your travel needs four to six weeks before travel. Some vaccines take one to two weeks to be active so it is important to plan ahead. A few of the vaccines are also a series of two or three injections over several months.

We ask for payment at the time of services. Some preventative vaccines are covered by your insurance however many travel vaccines are not. As a pharmacy, we are able to bill the vaccine and immediately know your copay or if it is not covered by your insurance. We accept cash, personal check, and credit or debit cards.
