Do I need a consultation with a travel health
expert before getting my vaccines?

  With limited exceptions, all travelers will need a consultation at some level, before we can administer any vaccinations. This time allows us to ensure that you will be getting the right vaccines and advice for your needs. We're always pleased when travelers arrive with information and lists of vaccines from tour operators, employers, colleagues, friends or other sources; however, it is important that we go through the steps to make sure that these are the right vaccines for you. In many cases, you may not need all the vaccines you thought you did; in other cases you may need additional information and vaccines to help you stay well while on the road. We hear everyday from travelers that the consultation was extremely informative and valuable to them.
