The primary function of the International Travel Program is to provide customized travel health consultations to individuals traveling abroad.  Destination specific immunizations are administered and preventative medicine services are offered.  Additionally, the latest health and safety recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control for each destination is provideed.

We offer travel services for individual vacationers, business travelers, church groups and missionary teams. Services include immunizations, international certificate of vaccination, malaria prevention medication, and travel consultation. Consultations are with experienced nursing staff and include travel packets of reference information and the most current travel information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

To better serve you, we accept the following insurances:

Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) and UnitedHealthcare
If you have BCBS or UnitedHealthcare, you may be responsible for your deductible and/or copayment at the time of service.

Aetna, Cigna and Medcost
Patients with these insurance plans will need to pay for their visit in full at the time of service.  A claim will be filed on the patient’s behalf and if payment is received, the patient will receive a refund. 


As a result of your clinic visit and if you are eligible, some travel medications may also be available for you at reduced costs from the Health Department Pharmacy.  Please note that our Health Department Pharmacy does not accept insurance prescription cards.
