Vaden’s Travel Clinic provides you with pre-travel consultation specific to your health history, destination, potential activities, and the health and safety issues of the destination. Our goal is to help you stay safe and healthy during your trip so you can enjoy your experience to the fullest extent. We can also help coordinate a Medical Services evaluation for travelers with self-identified risk factors and/or disease symptoms. There is a consultation fee, and immunizations are charged separately.

The clinic is staffed by nurses certified in travel health by the International Society of Travel Medicine and nurses specializing in travel health. For additional information see the Medical Services Staff page.
