TRAVEL ADVICE & VACCINES

When planning vacations, remember that certain countries outside the United States, such as those in Africa, South America and Southeast Asia, require vaccinations and other preventive medications. Making plans to ensure good health for your international trip is just as important as obtaining your passport and your airline tickets.

The Providers will ensure that you receive a thorough consultation and evaluation of your immunization needs. Our practice ensures that patients receive comprehensive, personalized care.
