Regardless of age, we all need immunizations to protect against serious, and sometimes deadly, diseases. The specific vaccines you need as an adult are determined by your age, job, lifestyle, health conditions, travel destinations, and which vaccines you’ve had in the past. The TLCHD offers Adult & Travel Immunizations at competitive prices along with vaccine and travel information.
The TLCHD offers the following vaccines. Most vaccines are covered by insurance, but please check with your insurance carrier for your financial responsibility.

In addition to adult vaccinations, the following travel vaccines are available. Most travel vaccines are not covered by insurance, please check with your insurance carrier for your financial responsibility.
Plan ahead to vaccinate. You need time to complete the vaccine series before you travel and your body needs time to build up immunity. Start planning for your vaccines when you start planning for your trip.
To discuss your vaccine needs or our vaccine prices please contact our Travel Nurse at 419-213-4163.
