Doctor listening to patient's breathingTo be sure which Travel Clinic services will be covered by your insurance, please check with your carrier. Health maintenance organization (HMO) members will need a referral from their primary care physician prior to consultation at the Travel Clinic.

Although we suggest you contact us well in advance of your trip, same-day visits can be arranged, if necessary. If time permits, appointments should be scheduled two to three weeks before your departure. Trekkers and bicyclists traveling to developing countries may wish to schedule their visits four weeks before departure, in case they need to receive a rabies vaccine.

An appointment at the Travel and Tropical Medicine Clinic generally takes about one hour, including reviews of your medical history and travel plans and a limited examination to determine which vaccines are appropriate for you.
