Health Department reopens travel, adult immunizations clinic

The Health Department is reopening its Travel and Adult Immunizations Clinic, located at the 3rd street facility, to the public.

The Travel and Adult Immunizations clinic offers travel health consultation services in addition to a full range of travel immunizations and routine adult vaccines.

The clinic serves a variety of clients including individuals and groups traveling on mission trips, persons traveling for educational or recreational purposes, families or individuals moving to other countries and business travelers.

The Health Department recommends clients contact the clinic four to six weeks before a trip to begin health-related preparation for travel. Appointments are required. Call 423 209-8340 to make an appointment.

Before appointments, a travel nurse contacts clients and provides them with information about each country they plan to visit – including insect concerns, health risks, food and water precautions, rabies risks and current travel advisories.

The travel nurse also discusses the Health Department’s billing policy and the costs that are due at the time of service.

The Travel Clinic is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. View a full list of vaccinations offered at the clinic at Health.HamiltonTN.org.
