Vaccines are a fairly safe treatment for contagious diseases and viruses, however they can come with some risks.

At RXUC, each travel vaccination visit is with a Physician Assistant who will go over what is recommended by CDC guidelines. Your PA will reconcile that against vaccinations you have already had. Your office visit will be covered by insurance, however, typically you will have to pay for the travel vaccinations due to them not being required.
