Planning a trip abroad? Let us help you prepare.

Up to 70% of travelers report some sort of health problem during or after a trip, especially those traveling to tropical locations.

The best way to avoid health problems when traveling outside the United States is to be prepared before you go. The most effective way to be sure you're fully prepared is by consulting with one of our Travel Medicine Specialists and creating your own Travel Health Profile.

That way, before you leave, you can get the required and recommended immunizations*, and fill any prescription medications you may need while you’re away.

How It Works

  1. Complete the online Travel Medicine Consultation Form.
  2. In the form, select the Jewel-Osco Pharmacy to which you’d like your recommendations to be transmitted.
  3. The pharmacy staff at the location selected will contact you within 2 business days to discuss the recommendations and to set up an appointment to receive the immunizations.

The cost of this service is $49, and you'll be charged when you complete the online form.

Please note: Allow as much time as possible before your trip, as some immunization series need to be started a few weeks or even months before travel. Age restrictions vary by state. See pharmacy for details.
