What if I need immunization for international travel?

Immunizations for international travel are available on a walk-in basis at our Parham Road location in Richmond, the Holland Road location in Virginia Beach, our Waldorf, Lutherville, Rockville, and Glen Burnie locations in Maryland, the Alexandria and Chantilly locations in Northern Virginia, and our East Norriton and Bethlehem locations in Eastern Pennsylvania. Because of the expense and short shelf life of some vaccines, we have limited administration of these immunizations to select centers.

Our travel immunization centers also offer vaccines commonly required for travel:

  • TET/DIP (Tetanus/diphtheria vaccine)
  • TYPHIM VI (Typhoid vaccine)
  • VARIVAX (Varicella vaccine)

Unfortunately, due to current shortage of yellow fever vaccine, Patient First is unable to provide this vaccination at this time. If you require a yellow fever vaccination for your travel, please visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website to find a location near you that provides this vaccination.

When you come in, our physicians will review your travel itinerary, check your medical history, and provide the appropriate vaccine(s) as recommended by the CDC. Unfortunately, we cannot give recommendations over the telephone. It is recommended that you come in at least two weeks before departure to provide time for the vaccine to become effective as well as to allow time for treatment in the unlikely event that there is an adverse or allergic reaction to the vaccine.
