What information should I bring
to the appointment?

  It is very important to have as much information about your itinerary as possible. This includes dates of travel; countries/regions to visit; purpose of the trip and proposed activities; accommodations etc. In addition any available or known vaccination history will help us to make the most specific recommendations for your needs. We will also ask you about your pertinent health and medical history including medications and known allergies.

All of this information will help us to make a very detailed travel health risk assessment and help to determine the most appropriate vaccines and other measures to help reduce your risks. When you arrive for your appointment, we will ask you to fill out a questionnaire which will be reviewed during your visit.
