OU Health Services administers immunizations for students, faculty, staff and dependents who are traveling outside of the United States. OUHS is a certified yellow fever clinic. If possible, you should schedule your appointment six months prior to your departure. An early appointment is advised because some immunizations require a series of injections over a period of time and/or take a few days or weeks to give you full immunity. Please bring your immunization records to your appointment. The nurse will then determine which immunizations are required and which immunizations are recommended. Recommended immunizations may vary depending on your age, current health, departure/arrival dates, and travel itinerary. OU Health Services follows the recommendations set by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and WHO (World Health Organization). The travel consultation is free, but the cost of vaccines may vary depending on the number and type of injections. Once the nurse has determined which immunizations you are to be given, pricing information can be obtained from our business office.

There are several things we will need to know before recommending immunizations or medication:

1. Where are you traveling?
2. What is the length of your stay?
3. Dates for departure and return.
4. If you are visiting urban or rural areas.
5. Current list of medications and chronic health conditions.
