Travel Immunizations

The Student Health Center offers travel immunizations to students, faculty, and staff who are traveling abroad. The Student Health Center consults with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for specific recommendations dependent on the country of destination. Travelers may also visit the CDC's website for more information at cdc.gov/travel/.

If you are planning to go to a foreign country and would like to discuss travel vaccinations with a provider from the Student Health Center, please fill out the Online Travel Questionnaire (MS Word) by completing the top portion, saving the file to your computer, and then emailing it as an attachment to travelconsultants@apu.edu.

You will then be contacted by someone from the SHC via email. The email will have links to specific online videos posted on YouTube that give additional details of the vaccinations that you need. These videos must be viewed prior to coming in for your travel consultation and shots. Someone from the SHC will also call you to set up an appointment for your travel consultation and shots.

If you have not been contacted by the SHC within two business days, please call us at (626) 815-2100. If you already know which vaccinations are needed, you may click on the appropriate links below after filling out the Online Travel Questionnaire.
