Pre-departure Health

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Travelers should review the health information contained on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for each country they plan to visit and discuss any concerns with their doctor or a travel medical professional.

International Travel Consultation, Immunizations and Vaccinations

Travelers should schedule a travel medical consultation with a health care professional well in advance of traveling abroad to obtain the necessary immunizations, vaccinations and prophylactic medicines. If prescribed abroad, preventative medicines are not covered under the supplemental travel insurance.

Travel Consultations are available at the Wilce Student Health Center and cost $50. Students may schedule an appointment online via My BuckMD Connection or by calling 614-292-4321. It is best to schedule an appointment a minimum of three months in advance of your travel date as some immunizations require a series of appointments and many prophylactic medicines must be started prior to travel to be effective.
