The to-do list before international travel can be daunting. Along with your other preparations, you may need to be immunized against local health threats or receive boosters to ensure the full effectiveness of vaccines you already have. Let the team at Wellspring help!

The most important thing to do when getting travel vaccinations is to plan ahead, since some vaccines need time to become fully effective. If you are not sure where to start, Wellspring offers a $60 pre-travel consultation with a pharmacist to:

  • Review your itinerary and assess your vaccination needs.
  • Contact your physician to request prescriptions for the recommended vaccinations.
  • Counsel and provide helpful tips on food and water safety, and avoiding mosquito bites.

Wellspring does bill insurance for vaccinations! If an administration fee is covered by prescription insurance, it will be billed appropriately. For cash customers, Wellspring charges an administration fee of $25 per vaccine (max of $50 out of pocket), plus the cost of each vaccination.

Wellspring cannot administer yellow fever vaccines. Learn more about travel vaccines at CDC travel destinations.
