Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consult with a doctor who specializes in Travel Medicine before I travel?

In most instances, travel to a foreign country exposes you to a set of pathogens and parasites that are endemic to the area. You may or may not have immunity against diseases caused by these endemic pathogens. The purpose of a travel consultation is both to understand the possible risks from infectious diseases when traveling, as well as the precautions you can take (including medicines and vaccinations) to avoid getting sick. 

How is Silicon Valley Medical Clinic diferent than my doctor

Primary care physicians or travel inexperienced physicians may recommend excessive vaccination and prescriptions that may not be needed (and in fact, we see many patients who have been told to get vaccinated but actually do not need vaccination). Our clinic physicians are familiar with CDC Travel guidelines and are experts in travel health challenges overseas. With knowledge of your health history and travel plans, we can find the best and safest medicines and vaccines for your needs. Our knowledge of non-vaccine and non-prescription preventative health measures is not comparable to that offered by websites or other non-travel providers. We will give you specialized common sense tips for your heath traveling overseas. We stock most of the vaccines for your convenience. Our Physicians administered all vaccine injections. 

How long will my appointment take?

On average, consultations run from 20 to 45 minutes, depending upon number of people being seen and your itinerary. Vaccinations are given after the consultation. We require you to stay for a few minutes after your vaccinations. Allow at least one hour for the physician consultation, vaccine administration and observation period. Appointments can be made on-line 24x7. We recommend that you visit us 2 weeks in advance so that vaccines and or medications can take effect and immunity is well developed. Some medications you need to take for one week to become fully effective to protect you the fullest.

Do you bill my insurance?

Yes, we coordinate benefits with your insurance company and can bill your insurance company. You will pay for services at time of visit and we will credit you back any charges paid by your insurance. We want to keep your cost to minimum.

The majority of insurance companies will not pay for just for a pre-travel consultation and vaccination, and those who do pay, will not reimburse for our full vaccine costs. If you did not have a physical exam in last year with your present insurance, we can do your physical exam and assess your vaccination & travel needs. Depending upon your co-pays and annual deductible, insurance will pay only what ever is covered. You are responsible for any unpaid charges. 

We are competitive in pricing. Our consult and vaccines are administered by a physician with unparalleled quality and service you can expect from us.

 

 

 

I am visiting my country of origin? Do I need a travel consultation if

Immunity is not life-long. Individuals returning to the country where they were born or raised have the highest rate of acquiring travel-related illness.  Individuals returning to visit family and relatives are more likely to visit less developed areas, eat potentially contaminated food and drink from water sources that are incompletely treated. 

Why should I have a consultation if vaccines are not "required" by the country?

If you are traveling to Western Europe, Canada, Singapore or Japan, travel consultations are usually not be needed for healthy adults. Individuals with special health concerns or long itineraries may find a consultation helpful.

Travel to Central America (including Mexico), South America, Africa, Asia, and Eastern Europe, India, China,  is worthy of consultation even if vaccines are not "required" as there are  many other possible travel-related illnesses.

How long before I travel should I make an appointment?

You should see us about four weeks before you travel if vaccines are likely to be needed. It requires three to four weeks for your body to develop full protective immunity after the vaccination is completed. Thus, it is best to have to vaccines started at least two weeks before you travel. On infrequent occasions we may advise you to not travel or modify your travel plans because of your specific health concerns or health history.

If you are planning to have a cosmetic procedure to look at your best for a special event, start a month or two earlier than your travel.

I have less than two week before travel? What can I do

If you have less than two weeks before your trip, a consultation may be of benefit; depending on how long you are traveling and where you are going. Same day appointments are usually available.

Most vaccines will not be effective for two to three weeks unless you have had prior immunization with the specific vaccine. However, vaccination prior to exposure is better than no protection. Older patients may be a candidate for immunoglobulin for prevention against Hepatitis A.

Prescriptions also may be needed for malaria protection and travelers' diarrhea treatment. If your trip is longer than three weeks from the time of the vaccine administration, then vaccines will be of benefit. The advice on non-prescription health prevention measures may be especially beneficial for those not receiving vaccinations.

We will go over in your consult on how to minimize risks to your health while you will be traveling.

What information should I bring for my appointment?

Please bring your medical history and any allergies. You may pre-fill the form or on our patient portal website, to save you time.

You should bring your itinerary, including dates of stay in each country. It is very helpful to have the exact names of provinces and cities, as our database uses specific place names to identify areas of endemic tropical diseases. You should have a good idea of the types of activities you will be undertaking and any possible side excursions you are considering. You will need to let us know your immunization history, so it is helpful to bring your immunization record, if available. You should also be prepared to detail your health history and medications being used and any vaccine or medication allergies.

What is the difference between required and recommended vaccinations?

 In general, "Required vaccinations" are for the protection of the visited country against the disease you might bring into their country. "Recommended vaccines" are ones that you should have for your own health protection. Yellow Fever Vaccine is required for travel to some countries whose mosquitoes could acquire the disease from you, if you are not protected from this disease; however you should also consider other vaccines for your protection such as typhoid, Hepatitis A, and others in countries that require only Yellow Fever vaccination. 

During your consult, physician will recommend you best plans based on your health history, travel plan, cost and other concerns. 

 

 

Are there side effects from the vaccines and medications?

Any medication taken has some side effects. During our consult,  physician will address any of such concerns and weigh benefits vs side effects and present you with choice.

Most vaccines have minimal side affects beyond a slightly sore arm at the injection site. Persons being vaccinated will receive a vaccine information sheet (VIS), which describes the benefits, and possible common and uncommon side affects. You need to inform us any prior history of adverse vaccine reactions.

Vaccine Information Sheets are available on the web at http://www.immunize.org/VIS

 

What is the cost of the vaccines?

We are sensitive to our patients out of pocket cost . We do coordinate benefits with your insurance company. If you are self pay due to not having insurance benefit or high deductibles or copay; we will charge you the lowest price. All our pricing is transparent and upfront.  Please feel free rent and we can give you estimate prior to your visit. Look at our Vaccination Price Info.

Please call for specific pricing information. Manufacturer's prices change frequently. We try to purchase vaccines at the lowest cost to keep your expenses down.

But we do not skimp on quality and safety. We purchase preservative FREE vaccines whenever possible and purchase single dose disposal vials and syringes to avoid any risk of infection or variation in dose measurement. Our Physicians personally administer and oversee the vaccination process.

 

Are malaria medicines needed?. Are these dangerous to take?

Immunity to malaria does not prevent you from acquiring the disease again. Immunity is incomplete and declines with time. Even if you had disease before or were raised in country with malaria, you need to take precautions and medications.

Are the malaria medicines dangerous to take?

Adverse affects of the anti-malarial medications are specific to the medicine being used and one's own health history and potential adverse drug interactions. Aralen (chloroquine), Malarone (atavoquone/proguanil) and Vibramycin (doxycycline) are generally very well tolerated. Larium (mefloquine) has a reputation for major adverse reactions. Please see our Malaria information for more specific information. (References)
