WVU International Travel Health Clinic

Travel to new and exotic locations is on many people’s “to-do” lists. Advance preparation can ensure that your trip is a healthy, enjoyable experience. In addition to acquiring a passport, packing properly, and learning about the destination, it’s a good idea to make arrangements to safeguard your health.

Travel health, or emporiatrics, is a branch of medicine that aims to prepare travelers for contact with foreign diseases. The WVU International Travel Health Clinic provides an in-depth assessment of any itinerary with specific recommendations and on-site vaccinations. It is the only designated yellow fever vaccination site in North Central West Virginia.
