Why visit a travel clinic?

- Because we are in the business of Travel Medicine, we get daily updates about any new happenings around the world.
- Most family physicians do not carry the necessary vaccines required for travel.
- Unlike family physicians, travel clinics have access to specialty travel health products, safety tips and security information.
