Travel Clinic

Travel Services Offered

If you plan to travel, our Travel Clinic provides comprehensive and personalized recommendations, medications and vaccinations based upon both your destination and your itinerary. Services are available to students, faculty and staff. Faculty and staff traveling internationally for personal reasons or on university-related business may take advantage of Travel Clinic services.

Please complete the Travel Form via the HealthyPack Portal 6-8 weeks before you plan to travel. Remember, most vaccines take 10-30 days to become effective and protective.

**Please note that we no longer have the Yellow Fever vaccine available due to a nationwide shortage.  During this shortage, the FDA has Stamaril as an investigational drug.  Stamaril is a yellow fever vaccine that has been used in 70 countries for more than 30 years.  As it is an investigational drug, only 250 locations nationwide are currently carrying it.  Locally, it is available at the Wake County Health Department and Passport Health.  We are advising patients to contact the Wake County Health Department to schedule an appointment to receive Stamaril.  You will be required to complete a consent form, which may be accessed through their website**.
