MedRite Offers Travel Vaccines to Residents & Visitors in Hell’s Kitchen
Don’t let the lack of travel vaccines keep you stranded in Hell’s Kitchen if you’re planning an exciting adventure abroad.

Travel health experts advise meeting with a travel health provider four to six weeks before any excursion to discuss travel plans and to receive any necessary travel vaccines. Oftentimes, some vaccinations are administered in a series over a few months because the body requires adequate time to develop the immunity.
The three types of travel vaccines, all of which MedRite Urgent Care offers in Hell’s Kitchen, are:
- Routine vaccinations – These immunizations, which are standard and recommended for the U.S. population, commence at birth and are updated throughout a person’s life. Routine inoculations include Polio, Meningitis, Hepatitis A and B, Pneumonia, and Rotavirus.
- Required vaccinations – As the name implies, these travel vaccines are obligatory when traveling to specific countries. For example, particular nations in Africa and South America require yellow fever and meningitis immunizations along with the International Certificate of Vaccination, or Yellow Card, to enter these countries.
- Recommended vaccinations – These vaccines directly depend on your destination, age, health status, and the specifics of your travel plan.
Besides being up to date on all your vaccinations, good health is your next best line of defense against getting sick while you’re on a trip. MedRite offers routine and urgent medical care to help ensure that you’re in the best shape for your enterprise overseas.
