Foreign travel



Before getting an appointment for foreign travel services, you must:

1. Complete the Patient Travel Questionnaire.

2. Return the questionnaire with a copy of your immunization record. You can return the completed form in person, by mail or by fax. Do not email.

3. Once we receive the completed form and your immunization record, the nurse will review them. All scheduled appointments will be prioritized according to the date of travel.

We encourage you to consult the CDC travel website (www.CDC.gov/travel). Enter your destination countries and look for recommended or required vaccines.

If you are able to determine the vaccines on your own and you do not require Yellow Fever, Japanese Encephalitis or Typhoid vaccines or Malaria Prophylaxis, we can provide other vaccines without a foreign travel consult.

Please allow at least 4 weeks before the travel date to schedule an appointment for optimal protection. Vaccines take time to reach full effect.

Appointments are limited. If we are not able to meet your needs, other options are listed below.


The following fees are per person and not billable to insurance:

  • Foreign Travel Consult Fee $36
  • Malaria Prescription $10
  • Yellow Fever Site Fee $10

Vaccine charges are separate and may be billable.

Cash, check, and VISA, MasterCard and Discover credit cards or debit cards are accepted for payment.

Please be sure to bring your insurance card. We accept Medicare Part B, Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC, United Health Care, Medcost, Medicaid, Health Choice, Aetna, Appalachian Benefit Associates, Crescent Health Solutions, Healthgram, Humana Choice Care, Medicare Advantage HMO, PPO, and PFFS, Humana/Choice Care Commercial Plans, and WNC Health Coalition.
