Travel Health

Call 302-831-2226 or 302-831-4278 to schedule a travel consultation unless you are a Study Abroad participant. When you make your appointment, you will receive instructions for completing the pre-appointment questionnaire. Travel consultations and vaccine appointments are separate visits.

If you are participating in the UD Study Abroad program, consult the Study Abroad website for scheduled travel consultation meetings. Prior to your Study Abroad Health Meeting, please view the HTH health and safety video.

Travelers receiving medical care for any reason are reminded to inform their primary care practitioner about any recent foreign travel, vaccinations, or medications used. The cost for an employee consultation is $100. Student consultations are included in the semester Student Wellbeing fee. Travel consultation is required in order to receive malaria prescription or selected vaccines.

Travel vaccines are available at Student Health Services. Appointments are scheduled after completion of the travel consultation. Vaccines are an additional cost that will be charged to the student or employee account. Vaccination appointments should be scheduled 2 months prior to traveling, allowing ample time for necessary vaccines. Two weeks prior to your departure, you will need to have completed all necessary vaccinations. Certain countries suggest tuberculosis testing 3 months after returning from the visit. This can be done at SHS, for a nominal fee.
