Foreign Travel Services 

Travel immunizations are given at the Main Gainesville Clinic, by appointment only.  Appointments are available on select days and times, please call for more information. The cost includes a consultation fee as well as a fee for any vaccines received. Appointments are limited, so we recommend scheduling as soon as possible. Clients must arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled appointment to complete registration. Please call (352) 334-8849 to schedule an appointment.

Once you have scheduled your foreign travel appointment, please be aware of the following:

  • The consultation fee is $40 per person and $80 per family per trip. A family can consist of 2 parents and/or legal guardians and unlimited children under age 18 living within that legal custodial group, or a parent and one or more children under 18 living within that legal custodial group. Additional adults will be charged $40 per person. Families can choose to schedule separate initial appointments; however they will be subject to the family charge for each separate consultation if that consultation includes one parent or guardian and at least one other child. If you need multiple shots and you prefer not to have them all during your initial consultation, you may receive shots for the same trip during a future visit without additional consultation fees; however the applicable vaccine fees will apply. Additional restrictions may apply.
  • There is an additional cost for each vaccine.
  • We accept cash, check or credit card as payment of services
  • Appointments will range from 60 minutes to 2 hours or more depending on complexity.
  • You must arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time to complete registration. You must have your paperwork completed prior to registration. We reserve the right to reschedule any client more than 15 minutes late for the appointment.
  • Children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • Anyone age 60 and older or immune compromised will require a letter from their primary physician stating specifically that they are immune competent to receive the Yellow Fever vaccine. Please see Yellow Fever information below.

Also, please make sure to bring the following things to your appointment:

  • A copy of your itinerary: Containing a list of the areas you will be traveling and estimated time of stay per area.
  • Small ice chest: One of the vaccines offered requires refrigeration.
  • In order to provide the most expeditious and cost effective service, you should bring your shot records to your appointment. Previous shot records can be obtained from your parents, your high school and/or college, or your health care provider. If your shot records are unavailable, your appointment may need to be rescheduled until the documentation is provided. If you are unable to obtain prior shot records, per your request we will provide all applicable vaccinations required for the country you are traveling to.
