International Travel

Traveling outside the United States? Every destination, even different areas of the same country, has unique health risks of which travelers need to be aware. The Student Health & Wellness International Travel Clinic is here to promote safe and healthy travel through education and provision of vaccines and medications.

Your personalized visit includes:

  • Travel consult with medical professionals based on your itinerary
  • Advice on preventing illness specific to your destination
  • Education on safety, food, insect, and water precautions

Start early! Plan a travel consultation 6-8 weeks prior to travel to ensure time for necessary vaccines and medications.
