Manhattan Family Practice is an official travel vaccine center, offering immunizations for all ages and conditions, including Yellow Fever. With more and more people choosing exotic destinations and embarking on adventurous vacations, we wish to remind you of the importance to travel well-protected.
The World Health Organization (WHO) advises all travelers to consult with their doctors 4-6 weeks before departure.
Each year, 40,000 Americans die of diseases that could have been prevented by routine adult vaccines.
Also, make sure you talk to us about malaria and diarrhea tablets and remember to pack your sun-screen, your prescription medicines and a comprehensive first-aid kit.
Here is a list of recommended vaccines that we have available at Manhattan Family Practice
Please note that most travel vaccine fees are not usually covered by insurances.
Payment is due in full at the time of vaccination unless previously verified by your insurance. If not, you will be given a full receipt to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.
