Traveler Immunizations

Contact Us

travelMany of the diseases that have been eliminated in the United States are still common in other parts of the world. When traveling outside the United States, it is important to ensure your health is protected.

In addition to providing specific vaccines needed based on your destination, such as Yellow Fever and Typhoid, the Health Department also provides prescriptions for anti-malaria medicine and critical information on general safety issues, travel alerts, and health information from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

As soon as you know you will be traveling outside the US, you can make an appointment with one of our travel clinics located in Bartow or Lakeland to identify what vaccines may be needed before you travel.  In order to streamline the process, please fax the form located at the bottom of this page to 863-413-3163. You may also bring the form to your appointment. It can take several weeks or months to complete the series of vaccinations, so you should call well ahead of your planned departure date.

Travel Vaccine Questionnaire- please fill out this form in advance of your appointment
