Whether traveling for business or adventure, visiting friends and relatives in distant lands or providing missionary services...

The VNA Travel & Immunization Clinic has been providing world travelers with consults, immunizations and prescriptions to meet their travel needs since 2006.

Our clinic is a member of the International Society of Travel Medicine and uses the most comprehensive up to date travel health resources in order to provide you with the most current recommendations for safe travel.

During your appointment, you will meet with a trained travel health RN who will provide recommendations based upon your destination, health assessment, duration of stay and nature of your trip. Most appointments average 30 minutes. Our clinic fee for individuals is $65 and vaccines are priced separately. We ask for payment at the time of service and accept Cash, Checks or Credit Card. We will gladly provide you with a receipt you can submit to your insurance for possible reimbursement.

Appointments should be made 4-6 weeks prior to departure in order to complete vaccine series and establish maximum immunity. However, we often are able to help provide the best possible protection for last minute departures. Please call and talk to one of our knowledgeable nurses about last minute departures.

The VNA Travel & Immunization Clinic is located in the Ryan Ranch area of Monterey at 5 Lower Ragsdale Drive. We are open Monday through Friday by appointment. Please call our immunization line at (831) 648-3777, a nurse will return your call within one business day to schedule an appointment.
