It’s this time of the year again. The flu vaccine has arrived and we are ready to vaccinate. Please consider placing an appointment with us when you are ready.
CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted that live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV), also known as the “nasal spray” flu vaccine, should not be used during the 2016-2017 flu season. Therefore, we will not be administering FLUMIST this year. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Typhoid fever is a life-threatening illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi which affects 21.5 million people each year. Most cases are acquired while traveling internationally in the developing world. You can get typhoid fever if you eat food or drink beverages that have been contaminated. The infection is common in areas of the world where water is likely to be contaminated with sewage. If you are traveling to a country where typhoid is common, you should consider being vaccinated against typhoid.
It is recommended to vaccinate 1-2 weeks prior to possible exposure. The vaccine will last for approximately 3 years.
You can receive your Typhoid vaccine here at the American Clinic Tokyo. Currently, the following product is in stock: SANOFI PASTEUR’S TYPHOID VACCINE, TYPHIM VI®
