vaccinnacion smallAs one of the first travel medical clinics in downtown Washington, DC, Farragut Medical and Travel Care goes beyond immunizations, providing specific medical advice and product recommendations tailored to your specific travel itinerary and intended activities.  Our physicians offer individualized pre- and post-travel medicine consultations to children and adults alike.  In these consultations we provide the following services:

  • Travel vaccines*
  • Prescriptions for recommended medications (e.g. Malaria prophylaxis, treatment for traveler's diarrhea)
  • Health education tailored to the patient's medical history, destination, and intended activities
  • Security and medical safety advice concerning your destination
  • Advice concerning emergency medical kits, epi-pens, traveling supplies of needles and syringes, insect repellents, sunblock, etc.
  • Record-keeping of vaccinations and recommendations on booster shot schedules**Travel Consultations

The pre-travel consultation offers a dedicated time to prepare travelers for the health concerns that may arise during their trips.
The goals of the pre-travel consultation are to review the traveler’s planned activities and itinerary including any airport stops and layovers, as this may affect vaccine requirements.  We then use that information to determine any potential health hazards; to educate the traveler regarding the anticipated risks and methods for minimizing those risks; to provide immunizations for vaccine-preventable diseases and medications for prophylaxis, self-treatment, or both; and to educate the traveler to best manage his or her health throughout the trip.
Ideally the consultation is scheduled 10-14 days prior to travel or in some cases at least 30 days prior to travel.  But we understand this is not always possible and can see people at any time prior to departure, even the same day!

travel care smallTravel Immunizations | Vaccines

Some destinations have required vaccines (eg. Yellow Fever) and many have recommended vaccines (eg Typhoid).  Recommendations for specific vaccines related to travel will depend on your specific itinerary, duration of travel, what activities you will engage in during travel, and your prior vaccine and health history.
Vaccinations against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, poliomyelitis, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), rotavirus, human papillomavirus (HPV), and pneumococcal and meningococcal invasive disease are routinely administered in the United States, usually in childhood or adolescence. Influenza vaccine is routinely recommended for all people aged =6 months, each year. A dose of herpes zoster (shingles) vaccine is recommended for adults aged =60 years. If a person does not have a history of adequate protection against these diseases, those immunizations should be completed.  A visit to a clinician for travel-related immunizations should be seen as an opportunity to bring an incompletely vaccinated person up-to-date on his or her routine vaccinations.
We have the following immuinzations available:
