Travel Clinic

We are a Registered Yellow Fever Vaccination Clinic with the CDC and can provide you with the yellow fever vaccination certificates that you might need.

We specialize in preparing people for travel to every corner of the world. Threlkeld Infectious Disease uses the most current Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations regarding vaccinations and infectious disease prevention. We can also update our travelers on U.S. State Department advisories for travel to politically unstable areas.

At your visit, you will have the opportunity to discuss your travel itinerary with our Board Certified Infectious Disease physicians. They will make specific vaccine recommendations based upon CDC guidelines and will answer all of your questions.

 

Routine

Routine adult vaccinations (e.g. tetanus, pertussis, diphtheria) are available.

Recommended

Recommendations are based on specific criteria such as travel to rural areas, season of travel, patient age, and health status (e.g. we may recommend several vaccinations for you, including such vaccines as poliomyelitis, influenza, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, Japanese encephalitis, meningococcal, rabies, measles, mumps and rubella).

Yellow fever and meningococcal meningitis vaccinations are required for entry into some countries. Threlkeld Infectious Disease issues yellow fever vaccination certificates.
