Vaccinations And Prescriptions 2019-04-08T11:27:15-04:00

Our travel MD will figure out which vaccinations you need based on WHERE you are going, WHAT you will be doing at your destination, HOW LONG you will be there, and WHAT MEDICAL PROBLEMS you may have. We also review your VACCINATION HISTORY (if available) and may check IMMUNE TITERS to make certain you are immune to common diseases. The CDC is an excellent reference source, but the CDC vaccine recommendations were meant to be used together with a detailed evaluation of your specific trip details and your health.
