With 240+ travel clinics nationwide, Passport Health is your local leading provider of travel vaccinations and medications. Prepare your health for travel, visit us before you go.
In our globalized, modern, and mobile world, over 1 million people travel internationally each day. In many countries, vaccine preventable diseases are still fairly common even though they may have been eradicated from or are not present in North America. Without vaccines, epidemics of many preventable diseases could return, resulting in increased illness and deaths as well as a lower quality of life. Thus, vaccination before travel is imperative to ensure global public health, but the salutary effects of routine vaccinations for daily life at home are equally important. As such, Passport Health is committed to ensuring maximum immunization coverage in all populations from children, to members of the workforce, to the elderly, to international travelers via our nationwide clinic network.

Routine Immunizations & Tests:
Although vaccine-preventable disease levels in the United States have decreased significantly from historic highs, this fact does not mean diseases have disappeared. Indeed, many preventable diseases are in fact making a resurgence due to relaxed adherence to vaccination guidelines. As recent measles (maybe link to measles blog post here) and whooping cough outbreaks have shown, we can never take immunization coverage levels for granted and must be proactive in our vaccination efforts.
