The Vanderbilt International Travel Clinic provides required and recommended vaccines for people preparing to travel internationally. These vaccines can prevent serious illnesses. Whether you are traveling for work, school, a church mission or vacation, we help you stay healthy. We also provide follow-up care after your return, if needed.
Please make your appointment with the Travel Clinic well in advance of your trip. Because most health insurance plans do not cover travel vaccines, we do not ever bill insurance; full payment is expected at time of service.
The Department of State advises U.S. citizens to avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19; however, the Vanderbilt International Travel Clinic is open for essential travel. Feel free to call (615) 936-1174 with any questions.
We are the only clinic in Middle Tennessee offering the yellow fever vaccine. This vaccine is necessary for entry into some countries. We will have the yellow fever vaccine through 2020.
We are not just a shot clinic. You will receive a complete travel health consultation as part of your visit, along with all appropriate vaccinations and prescriptions. We also provide services for special health needs, including pregnancy, pre-existing health conditions and traveling with children or the elderly.
If you contract an illness abroad, our infectious disease experts can offer appropriate treatment upon your return.
