Travel Clinic

A travel clinic can help you learn more about the possible risks to your health and wellness while you are away. They also provide immunizations to protect you from infectious diseases that are common in the host country. In general, the immunizations and medications you receive to prevent travel illnesses are not covered by medical insurance. You may check with your family doctor about their knowledge of travel medicine.
