MSU Travel Clinic

All travelers are strongly encouraged to visit the MSU Travel Clinic before their departure.

Travel Health Consultations

The MSU Travel Clinic provides faculty, staff, and students with travel health services, including vaccines and preventative care. 

Services include:

  • Required and recommended immunizations
  • Counseling tailored to a traveler's lifestyle and medical history
  • Information on health risks and requirements for your destination
  • Educational material

All travelers should be up-to-date on routine immunizations, including:

  • Tetanus-diptheria-pertussis (DTP)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Polio
  • Meningitis
  • Chicken pox (Varicella)
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • Influenza

When To Consult With A Travel Health Professional

It is especially important to visit a travel health professional if:

  • You're visiting a country with significant health risks (e.g. malaria, dengue, tuberculosis, yellow fever).
  • You're not up-to-date on routine immunizations.
  • You'll be taking prescription medication abroad.
  • You have a pre-existing or chronic medical condition that must be managed abroad.

A primary care physician may not have knowledge of travel health issues, so you should consult a certified travel health professional. We recommend the MSU Travel Clinic. The Ingham County Health Department also provides some travel health services.

You may also want to consult with International SOS. Their team is available to respond to any travel health concerns that you have. Contact their 24/7 Scholastic Assistance Line at 1-215-942-8478.
