Please be aware that there is a nationwide shortage of Yellow Fever vaccines. The Travel Center at The Polyclinic currently has no Yellow Fever Vaccines available. We do not anticipate receiving the vaccine until mid-2019, but that is still uncertain. Please visit the CDC website to see which regions require Yellow Fever immunization.
Comprehensive Travel Medicine Services
Our primary responsibility and service is to educate travelers (ages 2-years-old and up) by providing medical guidance to keep you healthy and safe during your travels, including the provision of immunizations and vaccinations for vaccine preventable diseases. Board certified infectious disease and travel medicine specialists are here for you before and after your trip.
From consultation to providing vaccinations, we can help you stay healthy on your next trip. Learn more about the services we provide.
How to Schedule an Appointment
Call 206-860-4447. Please schedule your appointment 6-8 weeks before your departure to allow enough time for appropriate immunizations. Although advance appointments are preferable, if necessary we can see you on shorter notice.
Payment and Insurance Information
The Travel Center at The Polyclinic does not accept any insurance because most plans do not cover preventive travel services, and we are not contracted with insurance companies. Full payment for all travel related health care services is due at the time of the appointment. We provide documentation of health care services provided, so patients may submit to their insurance for reimbursement. Insurance plans vary on coverage for these services.
In addition, the Travel Center at The Polyclinic requires a non-refundable $50.00 deposit when scheduling the appointment. This is applied toward the cost of the visit. Should the visit need to be cancelled within 24 hours of the appointment and is not rescheduled, the $50.00 is forfeited.
