In addition to practicing healthy behaviors during the trip, there are steps you can take before you leave that can protect you from becoming sick during and after the journey. Experienced nurses in the Travel Health Clinic will consult with travelers about their medical history and planned itinerary to determine recommended precautions.
In addition to travel-specific recommendations, the Division of Health Services staff urges individuals to be current on all recommended vaccinations.
The Travel Health Clinic operates by appointment from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursdays. To make an appointment, please call 636-949-1857. For the appointment, individuals should bring:
Proof of identity
A current vaccination record
A list of all medications or supplements currently taken (both prescription and over-the-counter items)
Travel Health Clinic services are payable by cash, check and credit card (includes a service fee). For those with private insurance, the Travel Health Clinic can bill providers, although the clinic may be considered out-of-network and not all of the recommended vaccinations are covered by providers.
