Travel medicine focuses on protecting international travelers from diseases and illnesses. At the DMG Travel Medicine Clinic, our physicians and staff are well-versed in travel-related vaccinations and other preventive treatments and will help you establish a care plan based on your personal travel itinerary.
Our Travel Medicine Clinic offers a full range of immunizations for preventable transmitted diseases for both adults and children. Certain vaccines are given as a series, over a period of time, rather than a single dose. Most immunizations require additional time for you to achieve full immunity as well. To allow adequate time and to ensure you receive the maximum benefit from your vaccines, we recommend scheduling an appointment with one of our Travel Medicine providers at least six to eight weeks before you plan to travel whenever possible.
The Travel Medicine Clinic can also provide you with additional travel-related information including:
- Recommended immunizations and preventive medications
- Food/water precautions
- Insect precautions
- Country-specific information
*Please note, the Yellow Fever vaccine is currently on a manufacturer backorder and is unavailable at this time. Please check the CDC website for vaccine availability or recommended alternatives. We apologize for the inconvenience.
