Student Health Services: Study Abroad

Traveling Abroad

              It is always in the best interest for the student to visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website                     and see what they recommend for vaccinations; as well as, information about health in the visiting country. Look in                     the Helpful Tools section to see the list of specific countries Tech students travel to for a quick reference.

              It is always a good idea to keep a copy of your completed forms on you in case there is an issue or concern.

              Here is a list of vaccinations the CDC recommends ALL persons who are traveling abroad to either have                                       and/or update:

                            MMRs (2)                   Shingles

                            Tetanus                       Pneumococcal

                            Chickenpox                Meningococcal

                            Polio                            Hepatitis A

                            Flu                               Hepatitis B




              If you have a form from another organization (i.e. ISA or UT), you will need to bring that form along with your                                  completed Travel Physical to the clinic or to your in-person physical appointment.

                            If you need a copy of the form(s), please notify us at the time of drop off. We do not know what forms                                                 students are required to turn in for their specific program. It is the student’s responsibility to inform us of                                           what they need.
