The Student Health Center offers travel immunizations to students, faculty, and staff who are traveling abroad, and consults with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for specific recommendations dependent on the country of destination. Due to the recent increase in travel-related contagious diseases locally and nationally, the Student Health Center strongly encourages every student who is planning to travel abroad to make sure they have received all of the necessary vaccines and preventive medications for the country they will be visiting.
If you are traveling to a foreign country with the Center for Student Action, talk to your team leader, since they have been given a list of the vaccine requirements and other travel-related issues that pertain to the country you will be visiting. Once you determine which vaccines you will need, feel free to make an appointment with our travel nurse to have these administered well in advance of your departure. If, after reading the document provided by your team leader, you feel like you still have a number of questions, you may make an appointment for a travel consultation with our travel nurse.
