About AITC


Welcome to AITC !

AITC is a non-profit clinic that is part of the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH). As public health providers, our mission is to prevent disease and protect the health of all. 


The clinic was founded in 1999, when SFDPH recognized that many adults had trouble getting access to vaccinations. Within a year, AITC had expanded to become a full-service travel medicine provider, offering vaccinations, anti-malaria medications, and health advice for international travelers.
