Foreign Travel Immunizations
Travel immunizations are given at the Main Gainesville Clinic, by appointment only Monday through Friday. The cost includes a consultation fee as well as a fee for any vaccines received. Appointments are limited, so we recommend scheduling as soon as possible. Clients must arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to complete registration. Please call (352) 334-8849 to schedule an appointment.
Once you have scheduled your foreign travel appointment, please be aware of the following:
- The consultation fee is $50 per person and $100 per family per trip. A family can consist of 2 parents and/or legal guardians and unlimited children under age 18 living within that legal custodial group, or a parent and one or more children under 18 living within that legal custodial group. Additional adults will be charged $50 per person. Families can choose to schedule separate initial appointments; however they will be subject to the family charge for each separate consultation if that consultation includes one parent or guardian and at least one other child. If you need multiple shots and you prefer not to have them all during your initial consultation, you may receive shots for the same trip during a future visit without additional consultation fees; however the applicable vaccine fees will apply. Additional restrictions may apply.
