Traveling This Summer? Be Safe and Plan Ahead

Health Services offers a comprehensive travel health resource for Boise State students, faculty and staff, and all dependents: The Traveler’s Health Assessment.

Staying healthy while traveling is important; an injury or illness can quickly ruin a trip, be life-threatening, or cause life-long disability.

The Traveler’s Health Assessment includes:

  • A review of your personal medical history and advice about how to manage physical or mental health issues in a foreign country.
  • A review and update of routine vaccinations recommended for safe travel anywhere.
  • Administration of recommended special vaccines for certain countries where unusual diseases can occur. (Examples include yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, and typhoid vaccines).
  • Prescriptions for anti-malarial medications, if needed.
  • Carry-along prescriptions for treating traveler’s diarrhea.
  • Assistance with obtaining extended quantities of personal medications.
  • Completion of any required paperwork related to the trip (For example: physical exam forms from an overseas university, medical clearance to travel or participate in international programs, etc.).
