Approximately 70 percent of travelers develop a travel-related illness. That’s a very high percentage! You can greatly reduce your chances of picking up a travel-related illness with proper vaccinations and a few simple precautions. In fact, The World Health Organization encourages travelers to consult a travel medicine doctor 4 to 6 weeks prior to departure.

At Summit Health Group, we continually keep abreast of the ever-changing health situations around the world and are here to develop your pre-travel plan with you.

If you plan on traveling to another country, vaccinations are classified as routine, recommended or required depending on your destination and activities. 

We offer all of the routine, generally recommended and required travel vaccinations including, but not limited to:

  • Hepatitis A

  • Hepatitis B

  • Tetanus/Pertusis

  • Typhoid

  • Yellow Fever

  • Influenza

  • Japanese Encephalitis 

  • Rabies

  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella

  • Polio

  • Meningitis

If you are traveling outside the U.S. and need to know how you can reduce the risk of illness when you travel, please call our office to book an appointment today. 

As you prepare for your next trip, here is a list of valuable resources. 


Please note that most insurance companies consider travel an elective benefit and generally do not cover travel medicine. Travel medicine services must be paid in cash at the time of your appointment.
