Travelers are encouraged to check the recommended or required vaccines as soon as travel plans are made, as it may take several weeks for the vaccines to become effective. To schedule an appointment or learn more, call 772-221-4000, ext. 2242 or log on to

Due to a manufacturer shortage, the health department is unable to provide the yellow fever vaccine. A link to yellow fever vaccination clinics can be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
