Travel Immunizations

Travel Immunizations

The CCHD International Travel Clinic offers pre-travel counseling and immunizations for adults and children who are planning to travel outside of the United States.

 

  • If you are planning a trip anywhere in the world except Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or Northern Europe, travel immunizations are recommended. In some areas of South America and Africa, Yellow Fever immunization is required.
  • We suggest visiting the Centers for Disease Control website  to view current required and recommended vaccines for your destination.
  • Prior to visiting CCHD to receive your travel immunizations, we recommend speaking with your insurance provider about what travel vaccines are covered in your plan.
  • Because several weeks may be required to complete a needed vaccine series, we recommend your initial visit to CCHD be at least 6-8 weeks before departure.  If this is not possible, we will meet your travel health needs as completely as time allows.
  • For any additional questions about recommended or required vaccines and CCHD prices, please call 454-6950
