Travel Visits

UCEAP and UCSC Global Exchange Programs

Fall UCEAP and UCSC Global Exchange study abroad programs have been canceled due to COVID 19. The Student Health Center is not currently providing travel visits for these programs.

Travel Visits for Students Traveling on Their Own

If you're traveling on your own without a UC- or UCSC-sponsored group, you can book a travel consultation with the Student Health Center. Our travel nurses will go over the required and recommended immunizations for your trip and share prevention tips for common travel-related illnesses.

Make an appointment as soon as you know you are going abroad. You may need numerous immunizations before you depart and some are in a series that may take months to complete. If you do not plan ahead, we may be unable to accommodate your needs.

Costs can be high for some travel injections, so factor them into your travel budget. Your prior immunization history is important here, so you need to get copies of your childhood immunization record and recent immunizations.

Typically the Student Health Center gives travel visits to students with UC SHIP. If you don’t have UC SHIP, consider getting travel immunizations at your own doctor's office or clinic if your medical insurance will cover you. We may be able to assist students without UC SHIP, but the visit may be more expensive.

Call (831) 459-2500 and ask for a travel consultation.
