In order to prevent contracting diseases like yellow fever, cholera or Japanese encephalitis when traveling in other countries, the Federal Centers for Disease Control recommends certain vaccines. Some local Public Health offices offer these vaccines at a fraction of what you would pay at a doctor’s office. To find your local county office of health, look in your telephone book or contact your state Department of Health. Contact Center for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Infectious Diseases, Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, 1600 Clifton Road, MS E-03, Atlanta, GA 30333; 800-311-3435 or 404-639-3534; www.cdc.gov/travel/
You can also find low-cost health services for travelers through Passport Health, 888-499-PASS (7277) ; Fax: 410-727-0696. To find a local Passport Health office near you, see http://www.passporthealthusa.com/locations/index.html. This service will not be covered by insurance, so you will have to pay out-of-pocket expenses directly; however, these will be at a reduced cost than going to your doctor’s office.
