The Eisenhower Travel Medicine Program, led by board certified infectious disease physician, Cyril Gaultier, MD, FIDSA, uses evidence-based treatment and vaccination recommendations for pre-travel consultations set forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), International Society of Travel Medicine (ISTM) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH).
The program provides a comprehensive risk assessment for each traveler, which is essential to accurately evaluate their specific health and destination risks. This thorough assessment enables the physician to determine appropriate interventions for their specific itinerary with the goal of minimizing adverse health outcomes.
Vaccinations might also be required and should be personalized according to the individual traveler’s immunization history, travel itinerary, and the amount of time available before departure. Vaccinations are offered on-site by Eisenhower Travel Medicine Program include:
- yellow fever
- hepatitis A
- hepatitis B
- Japanese encephalitis
- mumps and rubella
- meningococcal infections
- pneumococcal infections
- rabies (veterans and adventuraous hikers)
- tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis and varicella.
Prescriptions for additional medications, such as altitude sickness and malaria pills, can be prescribed by the physicians based upon the traveler’s itinerary and destination.
The cost of an office visit/consultation is $125, plus the cost of individual vaccines and immunizations, based on the patient's needs and destination.
