Travel Medicine & Immunization Clinic

Counseling, Immunization and Prophylactic Medications

The Travel Medicine & Immunization Clinic at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center specializes in pre-travel itinerary-specific counseling, immunization and prophylactic medications for malarial and diarrheal illnesses.

More Than 20 Years of Experience

As part of the Infectious Disease department, we endeavor to provide the best pre-travel and post-travel care for our patients. With more than 20 years of experience in infectious disease management, our expert doctors and nurses are adept at recommending vaccines that correlate with various destinations as well as keeping travelers informed on their destination's current geo-political conditions.

Vaccinations

We administer vaccines to individuals requiring special considerations as a result of pregnancy, organ transplantation, immuno-compromise and other high-risk medical conditions. We are also able to accommodate those traveling for the purpose of work, study, leisure, re-location or medical tourism.

Insurance Coverage

Although we currently accept many insurance plans, we advise that patients call their insurance carriers to clarify that preventative counseling and/or pre-travel immunizations are covered. We also see "self-pay" individuals.
