Travel Vaccinations

Our clinic offers travel vaccinations and we are open 7 days a week and our clinic is based in New Orleans and the Westbank area of Louisiana.  We can help you get vaccinated for your travel destination.  Check this list here from the CDC’s website to see if your routine vaccinations are up-to date. Routine vaccinations can prevent many diseases that aren’t common in the United States, but they are still very common in other countries.  Next, check the CDC’s destination page to see what vaccine is required for your destination.

Once you know what vaccinations you need, contact us to schedule an appointment.  We are open 7 days a week. We can assist you in obtaining the right vaccines, medicines and information for your destination. We can also give you more detailed advice and recommendations by discussing your health and your planned activities and itinerary.

TRAVEL VACCINES FOR EMPLOYEES
