The Saint Mary’s College Health and Wellness Center can help you prepare for your Jan Term and Study Abroad travel by administering required immunizations and completing your Travel Health Form. Also, we will review ways to stay healthy abroad including: preventing insect and animal bites, being careful about food and water, and avoiding injuries.
Jan Term Travel Clinic 2016:
October 20-21, 2016
We will be conducting class visits and will be making all appointments at this time. You must attend the class visit to make an appointment at the H&WC to complete your Travel Health Form.
You must come into the H&WC to schedule an appointment for Study Abroad visits. There is a visit fee of $25, due at the time of scheduling an appointment.
We recommend that you have your Travel Health Form completed by your Primary Healthcare Provider if you live in the local area. However, if you are from out of the area, or unable to schedule an appointment with your Primary Provider, please come to the H&WC to schedule a travel visit.
Preparing for Your Appointment
Again, you must come into the H&WC to schedule an appointment for study abroad travel visits and attend your Jan Term travel meeting to schedule Jan Term travel visits. We will not be accepting appointments over the phone.
You must also complete the first page of the Travel Health Form and turn it in at the time you schedule your appointment.
Bring your immunization record and/or your International Certificate of Vaccination (the "yellow card") with you. Having a complete immunization record can help reduce the expense of unnecessary immunizations.
Cancellation and No-Show Policy
Due to the extra staffing and resources needed for travel visits, there is a $25 charge for all Jan Term and Study Abroad appointments.
We require that you schedule an appointment for the travel clinic. There is a $25 no-show charge for patients who cancel an appointment with less than 24 hours notice or who do not show up for their scheduled appointment.
Outside Travel Clinics
The Health and Wellness Center offers most immunizations needed for travel. However, we do not offer Yellow Fever or Japanese Encephailitis. If either of these immunizations are required for your travel destination, you must complete these prior to your Health and Wellness Center appointment. The H&WC also does not offer the Polio vaccine and a complete series is required for all travel destinations.
Please see the links below for more information regarding local travel clinics, as well as a price comparion. We recommend that you call the local clinic for the most up to date pricing.
More information regarding immunization requirements can be found at the Center for Disease Control website.
