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 also may impact the risk of foreign travel. The Travelers’ Health and Immunization Service at UI Health 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.
