Travel Health

The Health Service is not currently offering travel health services. Following are a few questions you may have and a list of travel immunization facilities in the area that are not affiliated with the Health Service.


When should I get my travel immunizations?

Your travel health visit to assess the need for various immunizations and medications should occur at least eight weeks prior to your departure. Recommendations for vaccines and/or medications will vary from person to person according to pre-existing health conditions, previous travel history, and specific travel plans. You may access your immunization records from NUHS through the Personal Health Portal.


Are there other resources or information that may be helpful?

You are strongly advised to fully explore all of the resources concerning travelers health provided by the Centers for Disease Control and the Travel Warnings and Consular Information Sheets from the U.S. State Department. These Web sites provide health information for international travel and discuss general recommendations for different geographic areas of the world and a summary of current disease outbreaks.
