The Brooklyn Hospital Center advantage.
All patients are given a full health assessment by a Board Certified Infectious Disease specialist. Your medical history, current health status and travel itinerary will all be reviewed.
The Brooklyn Hospital Center is fully authorized and licensed by the Federal Government as an international vaccination site. Our physicians provide all necessary immunizations, up-to-date travel advisories from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and important advice for avoiding communicable diseases.
Most patients are seen within two weeks of making an appointment. Because some immunizations require more than one dose, your Travel Medicine physician will work with you to help minimize repeat visits.
Don’t forget the Golden Rule of overseas travelling: Boil It, Peel It, Cook It, or Forget It!
- Avoid beverages and ice made with unboiled water.
- Stay away from unclean utensils.
- Wash hands thoroughly before handling food and eating.
