The staff at the Business Health Center travel clinic at St. Elizabeth Edgewood will work closely with you to ensure your optimum safety and health, regardless of your destination.


The clinic’s staff can provide all the vaccinations you need for travel anywhere on the globe, and its other services can be particularly critical for travelers who face threats from the hundreds of illnesses that are not vaccine-preventable.


Likewise, because contagions are constantly spreading to new areas of the globe, the risks each traveler faces are also constantly changing.
