The City-County Health Department (CCHD) International Travel Clinic offers pre-travel counseling and immunizations for adults and children who are planning to travel outside of the United States.
If you are planning a trip anywhere in the world except Canada, Australia, New Zealand, or Northern Europe, travel immunizations are recommended. In some areas of South America and Africa, Yellow Fever immunization is required.
Prior to visiting CCHD to receive your travel immunizations, we recommend speaking with your insurance provider about what travel vaccines are covered in your plan.
Because several weeks may be required to complete a needed vaccine series, we recommend your initial visit to CCHD be at least 6 to 8 weeks before departure. If this is not possible, we will meet your travel health needs as completely as time allows.
For any additional questions about recommended or required vaccines and CCHD prices, or to schedule an appointment for immunization, please call 406-454-6950.
The travel consultation includes:
Country by country analysis of your travel itinerary and review of previous immunizations
Designated official vaccination center for Yellow Fever
Information about general travel health topics and advisories
Information on food and water precautions
International Certificate of Yellow Fever vaccination provided
Malaria prevention counseling
