Vaccinations And Prescriptions 2018-07-17T16:38:08+00:00

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 that affect the shots you receive and the diseases you may be susceptible to. We review current information from multiple sources. We also check your IMMUNE TITERS and VACCINATION HISTORY (if available) to make certain you are immune to common diseases. The CDC is an excellent reference source, but deciding what you need should be based on more than this one guideline.
