Traveling is our passion. It is what we do when we are not in the clinic.
Traveling comes with risks, many parts of the world are dangerous and some put individuals at risk for diseases and infections that do not exist in the United States. There are many ways to mitigate the risks of travel. Our travel medicine services are here to help.

We provide travel immunization services to help keep you protected from preventable diseases! Available immunizations and pricing can be found on our prices page. Since vaccines are expensive and expire, we have limited quantities available on site. Please call us ahead of time to let us know if you need a vaccine so we can have it ready for you. As Wander grows and we grasp a better understanding of our vaccine demands, we will increase our onsite quantities of vaccines. We apologize for this inconvenience!
