Travel Health Online provides travel health information for virtually every country in the world. By registering and reading about each country on your itinerary, you can create a list of vaccines to discuss with the travel health nurse.
The UHS online travel health course takes about 15 minutes. In it, you will learn about the common ways diseases are transmitted and how to avoid getting sick.
During your appointment, you and the travel health nurse will discuss the vaccines and malaria medication to consider based on your itinerary. He or she will outline country-specific risks and precautions, answer any remaining questions you have about staying healthy while traveling, and administer vaccines should you choose to get them.
The Meningococcal B vaccine is not available at University Health Services. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) does not recommend routine vaccination of adolescents.
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The current low prevalence of disease, coupled with the fact that important data for making policy recommendations for MenB vaccines are not yet available, resulted in ACIP determining that insufficient evidence exists to make a routine public health recommendation that all adolescents be vaccinated with MenB vaccine.
