Immunizations/Travel IQ

Immunization - Immunizations are another consideration where early planning is necessary. Many countries require certificates of vaccination for entry in the form of a Yellow WHO Card. Some vaccines, such as yellow fever, are not readily available, and some vaccines are given in series, sometimes months apart. USF Student Health Services, the Pinellas and Hillsborough County Health Departments all offer foreign travel services. Check on and fulfill host country’s entry requirements for required and recommended immunizations, medications and HIV/AIDS and other testing). http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/default.aspx

Please remember to check the Travel Warnings link on the Department of State site.

For the safety and security of our students, USF cannot permit travel to countries with State Department travel warnings.

Students are required to register on the State Department website before going overseas (STEP). Please make sure that you check the box that indicates that the State Department can release information to the USF Health International Office in the advent of a difficulty.
