What makes our
At New Jersey Travel Clinic, we do our best to accommodate your schedule. Our clients find that our online appointment service is extremely convenient; it allows for making, rescheduling and cancelling appointments with a few clicks, 24/7. Appointment confirmations and reminders are automatically sent to you via e-mail.
At New Jersey Travel Clinic, you are seen by a physician specializing in Infectious Diseases and Travel Medicine. Dr. Vierheilig answers the phone personally and will discuss your concerns, if any, prior to your visit. During your visit, Dr. Vierheilig will review your medical history and itinerary - this allows her to determine which vaccines you should receive and what other preventive measures you should take.
Dr. Vierheilig personally administers the necessary vaccines during the same visit. Her use of very thin needles makes your experience almost painless. Administered vaccines are recorded on an International Certification of Vaccination.
Information on travel precautions is discussed and sent to you via e-mail at the time of your visit. Prescriptions are provided as needed.
Follow-up appointments and payments are conveniently made in the same exam room, which is why our clients call us a "one-stop-shop". Upon request, your physician is sent a letter documenting the vaccines you received. A copy of your medical records is a mouse-click away and is sent to you via e-mail upon request.
In case of an emergency, you can reach Dr. Vierheilig personally 24/7 by phone. If a consultation is needed after your trip because of illness, Dr. Vierheilig is available to see you and your initial visit is free if you had a full consultation before your travel.
Our regular pre-travel visit fee is $75 per person, which includes a full travel consultation and covers all necessary prescriptions, which can be filled at any pharmacy. Families are charged a flat $130 fee. The regular visit fee is valid for one year during which time, follow-up visits for additional vaccines or to complete a vaccine series are free of charge. If only one vaccine is needed, and no consultation or prescriptions are requested, the visit fee is $40. For non-travelers requesting vaccines (ie: for immigration, work, school, etc.) the visit fee is $40.
The cost of the various vaccines offered is listed here. We do not charge a visit fee for the flu, Shingles and HPV vaccines. Charges for physicals depend on the complexity of the exam. Please click here for additional pricing information.

What is TB?
TB is short for a disease called Tuberculosis. TB is spread through the air from one person to another. TB germs are passed through the air when someone who is sick with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, speaks, laughs, sings, or sneezes. Anyone near the sick person can breathe TB germs into their lungs.
TB germs can live in your body without making you sick. This is called latent TB infection. This means you have only inactive (sleeping) TB germs in your body. The inactive germs cannot be passed on to anyone else. However, if these germs wake up or become active in your body and multiply, you will get sick with TB disease.
When TB germs are active (multiplying in your body), this is called TB disease. These germs usually attack the lungs. They can also attack other parts of the body, such as the kidneys, brain or spine. TB disease will make you sick. People with TB disease may spread the germs to people they spend time with every day.
How do I know if I have been infected with TB?
If you have been around someone who has TB disease, you should go to your doctor or to your local health department for tests.
There are two main tests that can be used to help detect TB. A skin test (Mantoux test) is usually done on the arm. A small needle is used to put some testing material, called tuberculin, under the skin. In 2-3 days, you return to the doctor who will check your arm to see if there is a reaction to the test. In some cases, another test called T-SPOT.TB is given. It is a blood test that measures how a person's system reacts to the germs that cause TB. It is especially useful if you received the BCG vaccine in the past or if there is reason to suspect that a positive skin test is caused by other bacteria than TB.
