On-site Clinics

Passport Health provides everything needed for a successful vaccination program.

Comprehensive Corporate Programs

  • Education and communication before during and after your on-site clinic
  • Licensed healthcare professionals
  • On-site clinic coordination, set-up and administration

We are local therefore we are available to take care of anyone who misses the on-site clinic at our convenient location (with more opening soon).

Often medication therapy is required 6-8 weeks prior to traveling, so as soon as you know your itinerary, make a travel appointment so we can discuss your needs.

Flu programs – are probably the most widely used of all corporate immunization projects. They are safe and effective and Passport Health makes the program easy. What's more, the programs are highly cost-effective. Influenza is an acute, highly contagious respiratory disease, often occurring in epidemic proportions.

Influenza can cause: fever, cough, chills, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, etc. People of any age can get influenza. Most people are ill with influenza for only a few days, but some may need to be hospitalized. Influenza causes thousands of deaths each year. Anyone who wants to reduce his or her chance of catching influenza should get vaccinated. Optimum immunization in the U.S. is from mid September through early January. Influenza is prevalent in tropical areas throughout the year therefore, immunization should be updated prior to tropical or Southern Hemisphere travel.

A flu immunization program can increase company productivity, reduce absenteeism and medical costs and show employees that the company cares about their health.

Passport Health Miami takes care of paperwork including consents, record keeping and disposal of medical waste. Employers have little more to do than provide a room. Our office staff will fax all details and/or brochures well in advance of your scheduled on site clinic. Our nurses are specially trained in immunizations so the clinic goes very smoothly, and we can vaccinate 60 or more employees in an hour. Thus time lost from work is minimal.

Pneumonia programs – are usually coupled with an on-site flu program. People over 50, anyone with chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes, etc. and smokers should consider the vaccine.

Pneumococcal disease is caused by the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae and is more prevalent in winter and early spring. Transmission occurs from person-to-person via droplets and by direct contact.

Hepatitis B programs – protect workers from the hepatitis disease transmitted through blood and body fluids. Many workers need the vaccine, as it is required by OSHA for anyone who might come in contact with blood or body fluids. Allied health professionals, laboratory workers, police and correctional staff may be required to have a record of vaccination prior to employment. Many hospital, nursing home and assisted living facilities require employees be vaccinated. Students enrolled in allied health programs also need to be vaccinated.

Hepatitis B is spread by direct or indirect contact with infected blood and body fluids, such as semen and vaginal fluids. Infection is spread through sexual contact or through contaminated medical or dental equipment. It can spread through contact with infected blood from cuts and nosebleeds and during piercing, tattooing, haircuts and manicures. Sharing personal care items such as toothbrushes or razors may also place a person at risk.

Each year it is estimated that:

  • 80,000 people, mostly young adults, get infected with HBV
  • More than 11,000 people have to stay in the hospital because of hepatitis B
  • 4,000 to 5,000 people die from chronic hepatitis
Hepatitis B vaccine can prevent hepatitis B. it is the first anti-cancer vaccine because it can prevent a form of liver cancer.

Hepatitis A programs – People living in, or relocating to, areas of high endemicity, employees of child day care centers, anyone with chronic liver disease, primate animals handlers, drug users, food handlers, anyone engaging in high-risk sexual activity or anyone who is traveling to endemic areas should consider vaccination.

Hepatitis A is a highly infectious disease of the liver caused by the hepatitis A virus. It can lead to varying degrees of illness, hospitalization, or even death. Each year, up to 180,000 Americans contract hepatitis A. The source of infection is unknown in approximately half of all cases.

TB Screening programs – OSHA may also require an up to date TB test (PPD) for employees who are in close contact with people. The test is often administered with a Hepatitis B program and requires a reading in 48-72 hours by a nurse or physician. A positive test does not mean that you have tuberculosis. However, a follow up chest x-ray may be indicated.

Meningitis programsThe American College Health Association (ACHA) recommends that students entering college be vaccinated for meningitis. Some states now require vaccination. The vaccine should also be made available for U.S. military recruits, anyone who has a damaged spleen, or whose spleen has been removed, anyone who has terminal complement component deficiency (an immune system disorder) and some laboratory workers who are routinely exposed to the meningococcal bacteria.

Tetanus/diphtheria programs – Everyone should have had the series as a child and a booster dose every ten years unless traveling or injured. Tetanus/diphtheria boosters are often offered during other immunization clinics.

Tetanus and diphtheria are serious diseases. Tetanus is caused by a germ that enters the body through a cut or wound. Diphtheria spreads when germs pass from an infected person to the nose or throat of others. Toxins can result in serious damage to the heart, nervous system and kidneys. Immunization works by producing antibodies against this toxin, thereby protecting the recipients from these complications.
