Travelers attending the Advantage Vaccination Travel Clinic receive individual attention geared to their exact needs and the nature of their trip. The emphasis is not just on giving vaccines, but also on explaining other important precautions that help travellers stay in peak condition while they are away and after they come home.

We have been around for more than four years, provide cutting-edge service, and are trusted by travellers of all types, budgets and backgrounds. We are the only full time travel clinic in the Inland Empire. And one of the few in Southern California whose professionals carry a Certificate In Travel Health from the International Society of Travel Medicine.

Things to look for when choosing a Travel Clinic

Specialist travel clinics provide up-to-date advice and a full vaccine service; other clinics are not always able to. Many practices and non-specialist clinics can also give vaccines, but may not be licensed to give yellow fever, and may be inexperienced with less frequently used vaccines or complex destinations and situations. Ideally, pick a clinic that has:

  • The full range of travel vaccines: going to different clinics for different vaccines results in poor, fragmented care

  • Evidence of specialist involvement in Travel Medicine – e.g. a clinic run by practitioners belonging to professional bodies such as the International Society of Travel Medicine. Also, that the professional hold a Certificate in Travel Health from the ISTM.

  • Enough time allocated for each appointment – at least ½ hour for you initial visit

  • A large throughput of other travellers with similar travel plans to your own

  • An ability to advise you if you become ill abroad or need help on your return

  • A good reputation
