Travel Vaccines Specialist

Michael Aziz, MD

Primary Care Physician & Internist located in Midtown East, New York, NY

In our global world, over 1 million people travel internationally each day. In many underdeveloped countries, many vaccine-preventable diseases are still fairly common such as polio and measles. Without vaccines, epidemics of many preventable diseases could return to the US resulting in increased illness and even death. For this reason, vaccination before travel is imperative to ensure global public health. Dr. Michael Aziz and his associates are committed to ensuring maximum immunization coverage for their patients in the Midtown East practice from children to the elderly 

Travel Vaccines

Travel & Specialty Vaccines

We offer a wide variety of vaccinations recommended and required for international travel based on the latest guidelines from the Center for Disease Control. In fact, we specialize in these hard-to-find travel vaccines.

Routine Immunizations & Tests:

Although vaccine-preventable disease levels in the United States have decreased significantly from historic highs, this fact does not mean diseases have disappeared. Indeed, many preventable diseases are in fact making a resurgence due to relaxed adherence to vaccination guidelines.

  • Hepatitis B (adult and pediatric)
  • Twinrix (combination Hep A & Hep B)
