The International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) provides an easy-to-use global travel clinic locator that allows you to search for travel clinics near you (www.istm.org). You can refine your search to look for clinics that provide pre-trip consultations and vaccinations, as well as post-trip consultations. Remember that it takes about two weeks to achieve protective immunity, and some vaccinations require
multiple doses to be effective, so it’s important to schedule your appointment with a travel medicine specialist at least four to eight weeks prior to your trip.
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.
