Travel Medicine and Immunization Program
Bangor Region Public Health and Wellness
a division of Bangor Health and Community Services
It wasn’t that long ago that diseases such as polio, tetanus, and meningitis were the concern of every parent in America. Those days are long gone thanks to the remarkable success of our nation’s public health immunization program, which is arguably the most successful public health initiative ever undertaken.
To help minimize the possibility of childhood outbreaks and to protect individuals traveling to parts of the world where diseases such as typhoid, malaria and hepatitis a and b remain a threat, the City of Bangor’s Travel Medicine and Immunization Program serves children and adults with both immunizations and educational outreach to promote good health on the part of all people of the region.
Who We Serve
The Travel Medicine and Immunization Program works to increase childhood immunization rates in Penobscot, Piscataquis, Aroostook , Washington and Hancock counties. Additionally, nearly 4,000 individuals traveling from points throughout Maine and Atlantic Canada last year received assistance from this program, which is one of only two travel medicine clinics north of Augusta.
Services That Are Accessible
The program provides two walk-in clinics per week and one evening clinic per month. Travel clinic appointments must be scheduled separately outside of these walk-in clinic hours,to provide in-office consultation, travel precautions, vaccinations, prescriptions and education.
Throughout The Community
From occupational and educational related immunizations for area citizens including municipal employees, to direct service through the program’s clinic, the City of Bangor’s Travel Medicine and Immunization program works in creative and effective ways to help keep the deadly and debilitating diseases of the past in check.
