Why is the Travel and Immunization Clinic Your Best Option?
There are many people who are planning to travel internationally who wonder why they should visit us. After all, isn’t going to the local health department or their family doctor going to provide the same results?
The answer to this is really simple, NO!
The majority of family doctors and health department workers do not have the experience, access to up-to-the minute database resources, nor do they have the extensive understanding of this complex aspect of medicine to consistently make the proper travel health recommendations. However, the team we have at The Travel and Immunization Clinic is experienced, prepared and knowledgeable about international travel medicine. Just as you would seek treatment from a Cardiologist to get the best care if you have a significant heart problem, you likewise should see a specialist in travel medicine to keep you well when traveling abroad. Travel medicine is ALL we do, and we do it better than anyone else in the region.

Benefits of Visiting Travel Immunization Kansas City
When you visit our office, we can help you get only the correct immunizations and prescriptions. This will prevent you from receiving unnecessary vaccinations that are often given by well-meaning primary care doctors who are less knowledgeable about the current diseases in the exact region of the countries that you will be visiting. Getting unnecessary vaccines is not only a waste of your time and money, but could also place you at risk for vaccine adverse reactions. Likewise, if you were to receive an inappropriate medication prescription from your family doctor, you may not be protected from the disease it was intended to prevent in the first place.
Since we only practice travel medicine at The Travel Immunization and Clinic, you can feel confident that you will receive only the correct up to date information, and the proper immunizations and medications that have been specifically tailored to your health and your travel destination.
