Travel Services at EBFP
EBFP does not provide expert travel advice and recommendations. We can, however, take care of most of your travel needs.
We recommend that you begin by going to the Center for Disease Control Website
(http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/list.htm) and click on your country of destination and review the very specific list of recommended vaccines and malaria prevention.
You can then schedule an appointment at EBFP (please bring the CDC list with you). We can provide all immunizations with the exceptions of rabies, Japanese encephalitis and yellow fever. We can also write you a prescription for the appropriate anti-malaria drug. We can not write travel prescriptions without an appointment.
Not all medical insurance companies cover an office visit or immunizations for travel related services. The cost of the an office visit fee for travel related services is $75.00 plus the cost of immunizations. We ask that you pay us for the visit and immunizations at the time of service. We will, as a courtesy, bill your insurance company for you, sometimes they will cover this visit and/or the immunizations. If they do we will promptly send you a refund.
If you need rabies, Japanese encephalitis or yellow fever or need an expert opinion about travel we recommend the following travel clinics :
1. SFO Travel Clinic at San Francisco International Airport. An appointment is required, call 650.821.5601 to schedule.
2. The city of San Francisco runs a travel clinic at 101 Grove Street (corner Polk).
An appointment is required, call (415) 554-2625 to schedule.
3. The Safeway Pharmacy located at 5130 Broadway also offers travel advice and immunizations.
We hope this information is helpful and we wish you a safe journey
