If you will be traveling to other parts of the world, a physician appointment is recommended to help you plan for a healthier trip. Be sure to plan ahead. Some vaccine series take 6 months to complete.
It is very important that you bring your record of immunizations.

- Itinerary of your trip with specifics, including locations you will be visiting and what you will be doing while at each location

- List of questions
- Insurance card or departmental coverage for travel medications/immunizations
During your visit you will be provided:
- Latest CDC recommendations for a visit to your destination
- Evaluation of your immunization record and recommendation by the CDC for your health and safe travel
- Detailed information regarding disease prevention
- Assist with planning for your special health concerns
For more detailed information, check the Center for Disease Control (CDC) Travel Medicine website. This site allows you to review the latest CDC information for the region to which you are traveling and provides answers to questions you might have about specific health concerns/needs while traveling.
