Getting Started

Welcome to the Travel Clinic. It is recommended that you schedule your Travel Clinic appointment as soon as you know your travel plans. Please fill out the International Travel Medical Questionnaire (PDF) in advance of your visit and fax the completed form to 814-867-2584 (Attention: Travel Clinic), or drop off the completed form at the Information Desk in the Student Health Center. Please note your Travel Clinic appointment will be scheduled upon receipt of this questionnaire.


Travelers are seen by weekday appointment only. We recommend that you schedule your appointment at least 4 to 6 weeks in advance as some immunization series may take several months to complete. Please call 814-863-0774 and ask to speak with the travel receptionist. When making an appointment travelers are asked for their itinerary, specifically which countries they will be visiting.

Preparing for your Travel Clinic appointment

After your International Travel Medical Questionnaire has been received and your appointment has been scheduled, please bring to your appointment the following:

The Travel Clinic utilizes TRAVAX, a computer software program which is updated weekly with information from the Centers for Disease Control, the State Department, and international travelers.


There is a $60.00 charge for Travel Clinic consultations. Additional fees for immunizations and medications may also apply. Most insurance carriers do not cover fees related to Travel Clinic visits; however, some routine immunizations may be covered. Please consult your insurance carrier for coverage. Insurance information will be collected at the time of check-in if you would like UHS to bill your insurance. Faculty, staff, and students should provide an account number if your department is paying for your Travel Clinic fees.

Cancel travel appointments 24 hours in advance to avoid a “no show” fee.
