Traveling with children can be a wonderful, but sometimes challenging, experience. Normal routines are thrown out the window, and a new environment with different food, germs and people can sometimes lead to sickness.
For helpful travel tips for your family, check out the TravelMamaMD blog from our own Dr. Julie Wen, or these sites with information for families traveling overseas:
Our Pre-travel Clinic
We offer virtual pre-travel health consultations to discuss travel-related concerns, immunizations, and travel medications for your trip. You can schedule a consultation online by selecting eTRAVEL VIRTUAL VISIT from the dropdown menu, or by calling us at (425) 827-4600. Since some travel vaccines need to be administered up to four weeks before your trip, please take this into consideration for your pre-travel planning. However, it is never too late to benefit from a pre-travel health consultation.
In addition to scheduling a pre-travel virtual visit with your own primary care provider, you can also choose to schedule a pre-travel virtual visit with Dr. Julie Wen, our pediatric travel medicine specialist.
- While we will bill your insurance, you will be responsible for any amount of the service isn’t covered.
- Allegro Pediatrics is currently unable to offer Yellow Fever Vaccine in the office. If you are traveling to a region that requires this vaccine (most commonly Africa, South America, or Panama), Dr. Wen can send a prescription for the Yellow Fever Vaccine to be administered at a local travel pharmacy with an Pre-travel consultation.
- Allegro does not carry Hepatitis A immunoglobulin, Japanese encephalitis (JE) vaccine, or Rabies vaccine.
