Travel And Immunization Vaccines

Getting a shot can be unpleasant, regardless of your age. We ensure minimal discomfort during vaccination.

Which vaccinations do I need before traveling?

The vaccinations you need to get before travel, depend on several factors, including:

Where you plan to travel. Some countries require proof of vaccination(s) against certain diseases, such as yellow fever or polio. However, It is important to get regular vaccinations as some countries may ask you for  vaccination history before you travel.

Your health. If you are pregnant, have a chronic medical condition, or have a weakened immune system, you may need additional vaccinations.

Our experienced health care professionals will discuss your health and counsel you on preventative care and healthy choices.

How far should I receive the required travel vaccinations?

You should make an appointment with UrgentWay Clinics, ideally at least one week before your trip, to get the vaccines and medications you need.

If you need a yellow fever vaccine, be aware that it is currently only available at a limited number of clinics in the United States. Find the closest UrgentWay clinic and contact them in advance to make sure you have the vaccine.

How long does immunity from travel vaccines last (when should I get a booster dose)?

The duration of the travel vaccine depends on the vaccine. If you are traveling outside of the United States, you should consult a doctor who is familiar with travel medications for advice on your next trip. He or she will be able to advise you on vaccinations and booster shots based on where you are going and when you received your previous injections. Be sure to bring your immunization record to the appointment!
