Do you give vaccines to children?

Atlanta Travel Medicine gives Typhoid, Malaria, Yellow Fever, and Japanese Encephalitis for children. All other vaccines are covered under the pediatric vaccine schedule. We encourage parents to see their pediatrician for those vaccines as they are covered by your insurance.  Atlanta Travel Medicine recommends parents be honest with kids about the fact that they’re getting a shot. We suggest telling your child on the morning of the visit. The most important thing parents can do is remain calm themselves. Click for Tips for a Less Stressful Shot Visit.

 

Do you restrain children for vaccinations?

Atlanta Travel Medicine staff will not restrain children. We advise parents to hold kids in a way that’s more like being hugged and less like being restrained. Letting your child remain upright establishes a sense of control and decreases fear. Parents can also try using an over-the-counter topical skin-numbing cream on their kids, making sure to give it time to take effect.

 

Can I get a prescription for controlled substances?

As of July 2018, Atlanta Travel Medicine will not provide any prescriptions for controlled substances (i.e. Xanax, Ambien) nor do we provide courtesy refills on controlled substances. If you require this type of prescription, please see your primary care physician.

 

What do I need for my appointment?

Please bring a legal ID (i.e. driver’s license, passport, student ID card), health history form, detailed itinerary, and immunization records if available.

 

Can I use my health insurance at Atlanta Travel Medicine?

Atlanta Travel Medicine does not file any insurance claims nor are we a network provider for any insurance carriers. Most insurance carriers do not cover travel vaccinations. Atlanta Travel Medicine will give you an itemized statement at your visit if you choose to self-file or have a third party that will reimburse you for travel expenses.

 

What forms of payment do you accept?

Atlanta Travel Medicine accepts all major credit cards, in-state checks and cash.

 

How long does it take for my shots to work?

For most people it takes approximately 10 days for your body to start making antibodies (immune cells to fight a specific virus) from vaccination.
