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.
If your insurance does not cover travel medicine, the cost of the visit is $75 plus the cost of any vaccinations that you may require. Routine vaccines including Hepatits A, Hepatitis B and Tetanus/ Pertussis/ Diptheria are routinely covered by insurance. The typhoid vaccine costs $75.
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. Note that travelers to equatorial Africa and parts of South America will require proof of vaccination against yellow fever. For more details, visit the CDC travel website.
