Prepare for your visit:
You should be feel well before coming in for your appointment, if not, please call and reschedule. Minor illnesses such as a cold are not a problem, but something serious could mean we would not be able to give you any vaccinations. Below are links to forms you can complete ahead of time and bring with you.
Patient Registration Information Form
Permission for Services
Pre-Travel Health Screen
Parental Consent Form
We may ask some additional questions in the initial portion of your visit. Please bring the following with you:
Cell phones: We have little to no cell service in our clinic and would appreciate cell phones being turned off while here.
You should plan to spend at least one hour at the clinic. Your visit will consist of registration, time with the nurse for travel health consultation and/or vaccine education and vaccine administration and check out procedures. Also, we ask that everyone remain in the clinic for 20 minutes after any injectable vaccines are given so you can be observed for any possible reactions. Reactions of concern are extremely uncommon. Most people feel fine when ready to leave our clinic, however, feel free to bring someone with you. If they are not traveling with you, they can wait for you in the waiting room.
If you have children who are not being seen for services here, if possible, please do not bring them to the clinic. Children cannot be left unattended in the waiting room. You will need to bring another adult with you to watch them if cannot leave them at home.
We request full payment at the end of the visit for those services received. We accept cash, check, Mastercard and Visa. If you begin a series of shots such as Hepatitis A (2 shots) or hepatitis B (3 shots), you will be charged for what you get in each visit – not all up front. Business clients are welcome to call us regarding other arrangements when multiple employees may need to be seen for immunizations for travel or any other reason, particularly on a recurring basis.
We are unable to accept private insurance but will provide documentation for you to send to your insurance company upon request.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be able to drive myself home or must I bring someone with me to the clinic?
You should be fine to drive, but may bring a friend or relative if you have any concerns.
I have already had both of my hepatitis A vaccines, when do I need a booster?
Currently, the recommendation is to get only 2 vaccines at least 6 months apart. You should never need another.
Will you give me an immunization card to carry with me?
Yes, we are happy to provide you with a green immunization card and, if you receive Yellow Fever vaccine, we will issue you a yellow International Certificate of Vaccination.
Can you combine all the shots I need into one big shot?
Unfortunately, it is not acceptable practice to do this and no one knows how the vaccines might interact when mixed together.
Should I expect to feel sick for a couple of days after receiving multiple vaccines?
Not necessarily, in fact most people feel fine, even if they have a bit of arm soreness. It is acceptable to take something for soreness or fever – usually Tylenol or ibuprofen can help.
What do the vaccines cost? The prices vary. Please ask for specific costs when calling the clinic. We are happy to provide you with as much information about cost as we can. Generally, Public Health Departments are less expensive that other providers.
