International Travel Clinic
The Pueblo City-County Health Department’s International Travel Clinic has a team of public health nurses who, in conjunction with our Medical Officer, provide health risk related education and immunizations to prepare individuals for travel outside of the United States.
Services provided include:
Immunizations, both required and recommended, for people traveling out of the country. Recommendations are based on geographic risk and type of travel. This includes vaccines for Hepatitis A, Cholera, Yellow Fever, Typhoid Fever, and Meningococcal Meningitis.
Information on avoiding food and water-borne illnesses, as well as other illnesses and injuries for which travelers are at risk.
Prescriptions for malaria and traveler’s diarrhea prevention will be provided if needed.
Patients are seen by appointment on Wednesday afternoons only. Appointments may be made by calling the travel clinic at (719) 583-4380. Please allow at least two weeks or longer before you are traveling to be seen for your appointment.
Tips for your appointment:
Check on your medical insurance coverage; not all companies cover international travel.
Bring your insurance information and photo ID.
Receive vaccinations in a timely manner, especially if you are planning an extended trip. Don't wait until the last minute or you may not get the protection you need.
Bring records of prior vaccinations when coming for your "Travel Clinic" appointment.
Payment is expected at the time of service. Payments accepted are cash, checks, credit cards or debit cards. Some insurances are able to be billed. If an insurance is unable to be billed, a statement with the appropriate codes will be provided for your insurance billing convenience.
