An extensive travel program is available to serve student employees, faculty and staff who are traveling abroad. At the time of the consultation, comprehensive information specific to destinations will be reviewed and immunizations and prescriptions will be given, as appropriate.
Appointments with the Occupational Health Nurse are encouraged at least 4 weeks before departure, since it takes time to attain immunity. Some immunizations may require a series, for optimal effectiveness.
Occupational Health Services maintains membership in the International Society of Travel Medicine. International Certificates of Vaccination and other documentation required for your travel are available at OHS.
*Please bring your vaccine records to the travel consultation visit, if available.*
Fees are covered under the Occupational Medicine program for faculty, staff, or student employees venturing abroad. When necessary, a consultation with the Occupational Medicine physician would also be provided at no cost. Certain services that are not required or recommended may be billed to a department index number.
Currently, vaccine protection is offered for the several conditions. Please see the CDC website for more information.
Although no immunizations are required for direct travel from the US to countries in Western Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, it is recommended that travelers be current with their Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio, and Measles/Mumps/Rubella immunizations. Vaccinations such as Hepatitis B and Hepatitis A are also highly recommended.:
