Traveler's Medical Service is one of the few travel medicine practices that offers services for families, children and young students. Children and student travelers may be at higher risk for exposure to some diseases and conditions; therefore it is essential for parents and young travelers to be well informed. Traveler's Medical Service will focus on the travel related vaccines and specific health concerns of the trip; areas that pediatricians may not be able to assist with.
We provide all travel vaccines for children, however we do not offer routine pediatric vaccines. In many cases children and young students are up to date with their routine vaccines from their pediatrician. We can confirm vaccine status and work together with pediatricians as necessary. During the pre-travel consultation, older children and students planning to study or travel over seas, are active participants in discussions on travel health risks. Although they must have a parent or legal guardian present to consent for any vaccinations and prescriptions offered by Traveler's Medical Service, we spend time to inform and educate youth and student travelers so they will have the information they need to help them stay well during their trip.
We also offer special programs for student tour groups and a student discount.
Please contact us for more information on our special services for families, youth and student travelers.
