Affordable Travel Preparation
For preventive medical care no matter where you’re headed, RWWC is ready to help. We’ll review your itinerary and medical history, provide the necessary vaccinations and prescriptions, and give you advice for staying healthy throughout your trip. You should plan to see us six weeks before your departure to allow ample time for vaccinations.
Since many insurance companies do not cover travel medicine, the cost of the visit is $75 plus the cost of any vaccinations that you may require. Many vaccines (Hepatitis A and B as well as the Tetanus vaccine) are covered by most insurances, but some are not and some insurance plans have limited coverage. We recommend you schedule your appointment six weeks before your departure so that you have ample time to get all of your vaccines as well as allowing you time to call your insurance after the appointment if you have any questions about coverage for vaccines that your provider recommends. Please be sure to bring your vaccination records to your visit.
When calling us to make an appointment, please make sure to tell the receptionist your itinerary so that the doctor can prepare for your appointment. Certain vaccinations, including those against rabies, Japanese encephalitis and Yellow Fever are only available at specialized travel clinics. We’ll help you determine whether you need any of these vaccines and direct you to the appropriate clinic. Travelers to equatorial Africa and parts of South America will require proof of vaccination against yellow fever, so be sure to follow through with any referrals your doctor recommends.
