Serving students, faculty, staff, and campus affiliates.
The UHS International Travel Clinic guides members of the campus community in protecting their health while traveling throughout the world.
The Travel Clinic uses the most current information available from the Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and Shoreland’s computerized Travel Health Information Services. Your personalized travel package for a healthful, safe trip includes the following:
- Travel consultation with medical professionals
Required and recommended immunizations based on your itinerary, personal history of immunizations, and planned activities during your trip
Official International Certificate of Vaccination (upon request)
Prescriptions to prevent malaria, and altitude illness and treat travelers’ diarrhea, as appropriate
General travel advice on precautionary measures for food, drink, climate, and recreational activities
Travel Consultations are required in order to receive travel vaccines such as Typhoid, Yellow Fever and Japanese Encephalitis. Travel consultations are ideally scheduled for 6 to 8 weeks prior to traveling, and no more than 6 months in advance as information may not be current by the time travel occurs. Travel consultations are by appointment only (see right column for details). There is a charge for the consultation, in addition to charges for immunizations and medications. See sample fees.
Travel consultations are available in person or by phone (students only). If traveling within 2 weeks, an in-person appointment is preferred so that necessary vaccines can be started as soon as possible. Please complete the Travel Intake Questionnaire (see below) and upload all available immunization records at least 1 day before your appointment.
Travel Intake Questionnaire
After you schedule your appointment, please complete the Travel Intake Questionnaire at least 1 day before your appointment. You will be asked to provide your medical history, immunization history, and details about your upcoming travel. Please be as accurate as possible when providing the travel dates and countries (in the order you will be traveling). If there are any changes to your itinerary, please call the Travel Clinic as we may need to adjust the recommendations that will be provided.
