Yellow fever is the only vaccine mandatory for travel to some countries. All other vaccines are only recommended (some more than others)
You seldom need all the vaccines listed for a country, we will explain your risks, how you avoid the diseases and you choose which vaccines are appropriate for your individual situation.
Check out our reasonable vaccine prices, we do not have huge markups like some clinics.
No injection or needle fees just the visit fees.

Yellow fever vaccine Shortage again
March 24th - we are out of Yellow Fever Vaccine until the end of March or beginning of April
When it is in limited availability we can only give Yellow fever vaccine to those going to an area with real yellow fever risk (according to WHO and CDC maps) which is greater than their risk from the vaccine (see yellow fever vaccine info)
if you have a contraindication we will give you an exemption certificate stating that contraindication. If not we will give you an exemption certificate saying the risk of the vaccine is greater than the benefit and that there is a vaccine shortage.
Contraindications are egg allergy, pregnancy, drugs and diseases that can suppress your immune system (such as recent cancer treatment , steroid, imuran, leukenia HIV organ transplant etc).
(Yellow fever certificate should only be required if coming from an infected area)
Yellow fever vaccine gives you lifetime immunity and the international health regulations are changing to say you only need on in your lifetime.
Enjoy a fresh cup of coffee or tea while you fill in your chart in the waiting room.
We use the K-cup system for fresh coffee .
