Visit your local Charlotte Travel Health Pharmacist

Our Travel Health Pharmacist provides a comprehensive travel assessment of travel health needs based on the traveler’s specific destination, activities, purpose for travel and medical history.

The 30-45 minute travel consultation includes a travel report regarding the destination to keep with your travel documents, one-on-one travel health advice and counseling about medications and immunizations. For some diseases, there are no treatments or medications available, however we provide tips and general travel advice on how to avoid becoming sick with illnesses that travelers may come in contact with.

While North America has eradicated many diseases, other countries around the world may still experience vaccine preventable diseases.
