Travel Health

UHS offers several different services related to travel.

Study Abroad Clearance

Pre-travel medical clearance required by Texas Global and other study abroad programs. These can be scheduled by booking online at myUHS or calling 512-471-4955. The cost for this service is $30 and the service is not billed to insurance.

Travel Health Consult

This is a consultation with a healthcare professional with training in travel medicine. This visit includes itinerary specific counseling on health risks and risk mitigation, including immunization recommendations. These can be scheduled by calling 512-475-8301. The cost for this service is $35.00 and the service is not billed to insurance. Immunizations have additional associated charges that may be billed to insurance.

Travel Prescription Medications

During the Travel Health Consult, some travelers are found to need prescriptions for medications for malaria prophylaxis, traveler’s diarrhea, or the prevention of altitude sickness. These prescriptions require a visit (in-person or telehealth) with a UHS provider, which will be arranged at the time of the Travel Health Consult. A standard visit charge applies to this service.

Prior to any of the above visits, travelers should complete the following

  1. Visit Travel Health Online for free, up-to-date information about travel immunizations. Review this information prior to your Travel Consult.
  2. Complete the UHS Travel Health course online. This activity takes about 15 minutes and reviews the common ways infections are transmitted and how travelers can protect themselves.
  3. Upload your immunization records on the MyUHS portal. This information is essential for our healthcare professionals to make the best recommendations about pre-travel immunizations.
