FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When should I get my vaccinations?

We generally recommend travelers initiate the vaccination and immunization process six weeks prior to departure in order to allow adequate time. If you’ve just booked a spontaneous trip, however, we do offer last-minute travel support. To build immunity, we recommend receiving your recommended vaccinations and immunization at least two weeks before your trip.

What should I do if I can’t remember if/when I had a required travel vaccine?

Repeated vaccination is not harmful, so if you aren’t sure whether you’ve had a particular required travel vaccine, your safest course of action is usually to receive it before your trip.

Can you provide vaccinations/medication if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning on becoming pregnant, some vaccines and medications may not be appropriate for you. Our team can help guide you in the right direction by reviewing your itinerary and determining whether we can provide a prescription, or whether a specialized travel clinic visit would better suit your needs.
