TRAVEL HEALTH INFORMATION

Whether you’re studying abroad, going on spring break, or visiting family in another country, it’s important to meet with a travel health specialist before the trip to ensure that you receive necessary medications, vaccinations, and travel health counseling specific to your destination.   This will help you stay healthy during and after travel.

 

We suggest you schedule your Pre-Travel Assessment as soon as you know about your trip.   Six weeks is usually enough time to get needed vaccinations; however, schedule an appointment even if you have less than six weeks’ notice.   This will allow you time to meet with a clinician.

 

The Student Health Service also provides Travel Alert bulletins.   If you are planning to travel abroad, please review our Travel Alert bulletins.

 

What if I get sick after my trip?

Make a follow-up appointment after you return from your trip if you develop health issues such as fever, diarrhea, rashes, etc.   Our clinicians can assess and treat any new health conditions and concerns.
