Before traveling in certain countries, Americans must have medical clearance and must be inoculated against the most common deadly virulent diseases in those countries.

Our knowledgeable, personable staff is ready to help you prepare for your pre-trip medical exams and vaccinations.
Appointments are easily set and should be scheduled well in advance of your travel date. However, it may be possible to schedule last minute appointments in the case of emergency travel. Upon arrival at the Dr. Gafanovich’s office in Upper East Side, you will be helped by one of our highly competent and customer oriented staff members. We give you access to information and guidance on which immunizations and prescription medications should be taken prior to traveling. Please be sure to go on a CDC website prior to your appointment and print most current guidelines to expedite your service at the time if your appointment.
You will receive comprehensive recommendations for your pre-trip inoculations and/or prescription medications that are based on your travel location, length of your stay, health history and current health status and type of travel you plan on participating in (adventure travel, missionary work, pleasure, business, etc.)
Dr. Marina Gafanovich MD, affiliated with New York Presbyterian, offers travel immunizations in NYC for those who are planning a trip or holiday abroad in countries that have disease conditions or outbreaks that require travel shots or special health preparations. While Dr. Gafanovich always prefers that patients plans for these trips well in advance we always try to offer same day visits to our Upper East Side office to do your physical exam and required vaccinations. Because of the nature of disease and outbreak epidemiology international travel clinics are often changing the recommended vaccines for a particular country or region. For your convenience, we provide extensive information about most popular New Yorkers’ travel destinations.
Your travel doctor in NYC may not be prepared for same day inoculation against those diseases present in international regions, carrying only those vaccines recommended in the US. Therefore, it is recommended that you find a physical or clinic specifically offering travel immunizations in NYC. Check Dr. Gafanovich profile at Healthgrades.
Dr. Gafanovich recommends having a physical exam before leaving if there is any health issue that might need to be address before international travel. Should you be suffering from heart disease, hypertension, or have a compromised immune system you should make your travel doctor in NY aware of this so that he or she is able to make an accurate appraisal and/or set of recommendations for traveling abroad that can prevent your condition from being exacerbated or worsened by an extended trip or even air travel itself.
For your convenience, we provide vaccination information on the most visited destination spots. However, for the latest updates, we still recommend that you check with CDC website.
