Find a Clinic

What do I need to do?

At least a month before you travel internationally make an appointment with a health care provider to get vaccines (shots) and medicines. You’ll need vaccines at least a month before you travel to be fully protected. Even a last-minute visit to a health care provider can be helpful to get medicines and advice for your trip.

Health Departments

In general, visit your health care provider or health department. Many health departments provide pre-travel advice, shots, and medicines. If not, they can usually refer you to clinics in the area that provide services for travelers.
