Bring your specific trip itinerary, a list of your current medications, and a list of any known medication allergies. If available, bring a list of your previous immunizations.

Office visit fees are based on the number of people treated and the length of your visit. During your appointment we will thoroughly review your exact travel health needs. Most office visits last between 15 to 60 minutes, but can vary based on complexity of your travel needs and health history.

The office visit fees most commonly range from $45 to $72 for individual travelers. Family discount rates apply to groups of two or more. This office visit includes writing any prescriptions needed and providing both verbal and written information to ensure a healthy trip. Immunizations are priced separately and vary widely depending on the specific vaccine. We strive to keep our immunization prices at or below those of other providers in the Kansas City area.

The Travel and Immunization Clinic is Kansas City’s trusted specialist in the field of travel medicine. Since keeping travelers safe is our mission, we have the most current and in-depth knowledge of the health risks and precautions necessary for destinations all over the world. Even the most well-meaning personal physician or family doctor doesn’t always have time to keep up with the complexity of travel medicine, nor can they afford to stock all the vaccines and health products that you will need to stay healthy while traveling abroad.

Most city and county health departments only have nurses on staff to provide immunizations. They are not staffed with physicians qualified to write prescriptions or to evaluate all of your personal health needs. The Travel and Immunization Clinic is staffed by a board certified physician and nurses who specialize only in providing the most thorough and personalized travel medicine services available anywhere in our region.

Our clinic has all commercially available travel-related vaccines in stock, and also maintains all routine non-travel related vaccines in our office. This means you can get ALL of the immunizations you may need during your visit to our clinic. You will never have to wait for the ‘uncommon’ vaccines to be ordered and then asked to return to have them administered at a later date. The Johnson County Health Department currently does not carry the Hepatitis A/B combination vaccine, oral typhoid or Japanese Encephalitis.

Many insurance companies do not cover travel-related medical expenses because these services are considered to be preventative health care. However, some health insurance providers do cover our services. It is always a good idea to review your plan’s coverage before your visit. We do give every client a detailed receipt which will provide the ICD-9 and CPT codes which insurance companies require before they consider reimbursement.

Feeling confident about your health and safety while traveling is essential to a successful journey. It can be easy to overlook taking the necessary health precautions during travel planning. The experts at the Travel and Immunization Clinic will develop a comprehensive office visit after doing all the necessary research for you. You will then have peace of mind knowing every precaution for maintaining your health while abroad has been taken.
