Making an Appointment

Traveling Student

You can schedule your appointment by calling Group I (858) 534-2918. Since many immunizations must be given well in advance of travel, we recommend scheduling your travel clinic visit at least 6-8 weeks before your departure. Call several weeks ahead to ensure appointment availability.

Remember to bring a copy of your immunization records to your appointment.​

After you have scheduled your appointment, complete the Travel Visit questionnaire form and Health History form (if not previously done) through the Forms​ link on the main web page. You will see a link for the Travel Visit questionnaire under your appointment listing. The Health History form is under "Forms" in the left column.

Some countries require an Official International Certificate of Vaccination for proof of Yellow Fever. Failure to comply can sometimes result in denial to enter a specific country. Other shots may be strongly recommended to protect your health and facilitate your travel from country to country.
