Monongalia County Health Department offers travel exams and immunizations for international travel and immigration. Dr. Lee B. Smith, county health officer, provides physical exams with pre-travel counseling and education. Prescriptions for malaria and traveler’s diarrhea for example, are also available with the travel exam. Refer to the CDC Travelers' Health page for the most up-to-date information on recommended vaccines for travelers. MCHD offers a variety of travel vaccines at cost, plus an administration fee. There is no prescription required. Separate immunization appointments are also available.
When traveling abroad, planning is very important. Appointments with the travel clinic should be made well in advance, at least four-six weeks prior to your departure.
Bring a copy of your immunization record, and the International Certificate of Vaccination, if you have one, and a list of all allergies and medications you are taking.
Be prepared to tell us about your itinerary: what countries you plan to visit, when, what activities you have planned, for how long and your accommodations.
An appointment is required to be seen. You can make an appointment by calling 304-598-5119.
