You can check out Away Clinic's online reviews, ask for recommendations from friends or family, or consult with your primary care physician for a referral.
When should I visit a travel clinic? It's recommended to visit a travel clinic at least 6-8 weeks before your trip to allow time for vaccinations and any necessary medication to take effect. Some vaccines require a second or third dose so it's important to leave plenty of time to get that done.

Some insurance providers may cover the cost of travel vaccinations and medical consultations, while others may not. It's recommended to check with your insurance provider before visiting a travel clinic to understand your coverage options. At Away Clinic we don't accept insurance but we can provide you with an itemized bill so that you can seek reimbursement directly with your insurer.
