Foreign Travel Immunizations

We offer immunizations for foreign travel by appointment only on Thursday mornings.

It is BEST to plan ahead:

  • Call (757)382-8690 as soon as you make plans to travel to speak with the immunization nurse to determine what vaccines are recommended/required based on your travel plans.
    If you leave a voicemail, please include the following information in the message:
    Name / Phone number / Destination / Departure date / Duration of travel
  • Getting vaccinated at least 4-6 weeks before travel is ideal to allow time to complete vaccine series and allow time for your body to build up immunity.
  • Gather your immunization records, and bring this with you to your appointment.
  • Verify with your health insurance company to determine if your vaccines are covered.  Pricing information will be made available prior to your appointment being set.
