International Travel

Make an appointment with your ASU Health Services provider, ideally at least 4–6 weeks before you leave. The provider will review your medical history to make sure you get up to date on the correct vaccinations, medicines, and information to travel safely. If your study-abroad program lasts several months, you will want to make sure that you've gotten all your routine health check-ups, including dental care, because the quality of dental and medical care may be different in host countries or more expensive than in the United States. If you take a medicine regularly, make sure you have enough for the length of your trip.

ASU Health Services offers a variety of travel vaccines, including typhoid, polio, flu, and MMR. You may need additional travel-related vaccines depending on your travel destinations. Every effort is made to ensure that our students traveling abroad have the resources and information they need for a successful study abroad experience.

Travel Vaccines

ASU Health Services provides vaccination and travel health information for students preparing to travel outside the United States. Students scheduling a travel visit will meet with a travel medical provider to determine the appropriate vaccinations required for their trip. The student will be provided with the most up to date information about food & water safety, insect protection, and other travel and safety related information.

A travel appointment should be scheduled as far in advance as possible since some vaccines are given as a series over a six-month period.

To schedule a travel appointment, contact Health Services.
