Preparation For International Immunization/Vaccination
It is preferable to visit the travel immunization clinic at the UVM Medical Center 4-6 weeks in advance of your trip. This allows us to properly administer your vaccines and/or premedications safely and effectively and in plenty of time before your departure. Some medications need to be taken several weeks prior to when you leave. Below is information you should bring with you to your appointment:
- What country are you are visiting and for how long?
- What previous vaccinations have you had in the past?
- Have you had any allergic reactions to medications or vaccines?
- What medications are you currently taking?
Upon your return, our team of specialists are here to assist you with any illness or symptoms you may have. The UVM Medical Center International Travel Program is a part of the Infectious Disease program and is equipped to address all your post-trip needs.
