Below is a list of the most common types of vaccines that our patients request. The CDC also offers a list of destinations along with the travel vaccinations and medications you will need for your trip abroad.
If you are interested in a vaccine, please contact your local MetroIPC office to ensure availability prior to your visit. Due to the varying shelf life on vaccines, we recommend calling at least a few days. The CDC recommends getting your vaccinations 4-6 weeks prior to travel.
For children under the age of 18, MetroIPC recommends vaccinations through their pediatrician.
