Prep & Planning

Prior to travel, the most important items to complete related to your health, safety and security are:


Travel Clinics

Family physicians typically do not have the necessary background to provide travel information. A travel clinic specialist is trained to consider your health history, current medications, and drug allergies in concurrence with your travel plans when recommending immunizations and other medications.

  • Find a travel clinic and make appointments to complete any recommended immunization series. Call at least 3 months before departure, as some immunizations need to be started months in advance
  • Consult your U.S. health insurance provider to identify a travel clinic. This allows you to fully understand coverage, if any, for your time abroad.
  • Note: travel clinic treatments are often not covered in U.S. insurance plans.
