Spotlight: Travel Health Clinics

Published on in Parents PACK

Travel health clinics are a great resource for those preparing for international trips. They can provide specialized pre-travel care, vaccines and medicines, and travel and safety advice specific for your destination. 

Global travel clinic directories are available from the International Society of Travel Medicine and American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene. Each directory highlights the travel health clinics closest to your location. Advanced search tools allow you to specify the services you may need (pre-travel vaccinations, prescriptions, on-site diagnostic and laboratory testing and post-travel medical consultation) and find which of them are available at each location.

Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.

You should not consider the information in this site to be specific, professional medical advice for your personal health or for your family's personal health. You should not use it to replace any relationship with a physician or other qualified healthcare professional. For medical concerns, including decisions about vaccinations, medications and other treatments, you should always consult your physician or, in serious cases, seek immediate assistance from emergency personnel.
