Travel Health Vaccines and Consultations Return

RVNAhealth is excited to announce the return of its Travel Health services!

Travel can make you feel wonderfully alive. But it can also expose you to serious diseases that may threaten your health. Don’t be among the people who experience health problems when traveling. Before you go, get in the know and learn about your travel health needs, including travel immunizations, by visiting our RVNAhealth travel health clinic.

Consultations and Vaccines Available by Appointment
Travel consultations with our Travel Health Nurses include itinerary-specific health advice; discussion and administration of immunizations; safe food/water practices; and other recommendations, including insect precautions and environmental considerations. Appointments should be scheduled 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel, especially if preventative vaccines or medications are required/recommended, but we will do our best to help you with last-minute appointments.

RVNAhealth Travel Health Nurses can administer the following commonly needed travel vaccinations*:

  • Hepatitis A & B
  • Yellow Fever {we are a U.S. Government Certified Yellow Fever Center}
  • Typhoid
  • Rabies
  • Japanese Encephalitis
  • Polio
  • Meningitis
  • Measles {MMR}

We can also provide advice on ways to avoid the mosquitos that carry diseases such as:

  • Zika virus
  • Yellow fever
  • Malaria
  • Dengue fever
  • Chikungunya

Travel consultations will be scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month.

To learn more or schedule an appointment, call 203.438.5555 x1012 or email BeWELL@rvnahealth.org.

* Please call us early so that we can best advise you on your travel preparations and review availability and timing of required vaccines.
