Travel Vaccinations In Tampa & Citrus Park, FL

If you are planning on a taking a trip out of the country, it is important that you come in and speak with one of our medical professionals to review your vaccination history and make sure you have all the shots you need for your travels. Vaccinations are recommended by the United States based on the country of origin you plan on visiting. Some countries contain diseases that are no longer in America or that are not native to America, which would lead to you needing to get vaccinated for a specific disease before you go. Our medical staff here at AFC Urgent Tampa will give you excellent care as well as advise on the specific vaccination you have after reviewing your medical history. AFC Urgent Care Tampa has all vaccinations on hand so we will be able to treat you the day of. 

How Much Time Should You Give

We recommend you give yourself at least 2 weeks before traveling to let your vaccination run its course and be fully functional by the time your vacation has arrived. Vaccination can work instantly and some may take up to a week but 2 weeks will give you more than enough time to heal from any soreness tou have so you can start your vacation without a hitch. Please note, even with your vaccinations you should not be taking any unnecessary risks to while abroad. One of the main things to look out for while across country borders are the water.  Please refrain from drinking the tap water as well as using ice cubes while abroad. Even with the correct vaccinations, there is still a chance that you can catch a disease.
