Travelers Health & Immunization Services

Traveling to foreign destinations can present health hazards. Those hazards may be unique to the destination or common to most. An individual's health history may also impact the risk of foreign travel. The University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health Travelers Health and Immunization Service evaluates travelers, their destinations and related issues to prepare them for foreign travel. The Service also provides after-trip assessments and treatment recommendations for those returning with travel-related exposures and/or illnesses. Whether traveling for business, recreation or academic enrichment, the Travelers Service can provide the necessary health services for a successful and enjoyable trip.
