Pre-Travel Health Consultations and Vaccinations

There are many factors to consider regarding your health when traveling abroad and we are here to offer guidance. Planning as far in advance as possible will help ensure that all your travel health needs are met.

We recommend that you consult with a clinician at least eight weeks prior to your scheduled travel in order to understand what preventive measures you need to take. There are multiple ways to get this clinical advice.

  • Anyone, including members of the public, can come to the Hub* for pre-travel health consultations.
  • Anyone can visit their primary care provider to get a prescription for travel vaccinations and visit the Hub to have the prescription filled.
  • Pitt Students may visit Student Health Services for pre-travel health consultations and vaccinations. 
  • Pitt employees with UPMC health insurance through Pitt (Gold, PPO and Basic) can get a pre-travel health consultation at no charge through the Comprehensive Medication Management (CMM) benefit. 

*Hub travel consultations provide travelers with an individualized, comprehensive plan to help you stay healthy while traveling. Consultations with our clinicians include:

  • A complete review of your travel itinerary.
  • Safety precautions tailored to your travel plans.
  • A complete review of your individual health risks.
  • A recommended plan for vaccines.
  • Recommendations for preventive oral medications and over-the-counter products.

Consultations may take approximately 45 minutes, depending on your travel destination(s). You may receive first doses of any required or recommended vaccines on the same day as your consultation. We will work with you to schedule any follow-up appointments for additional doses as-needed.

Starting Monday, March 18, 2024, we will be charging $85 for the travel consultation service. This is separate from the cost of vaccinations, which will be determined by your individual insurance coverage. Our clinicians will work with you to explain your insurance coverage regarding travel vaccine costs.

If you are interested in coming to us, please fill out this Pre-Travel Health Consultation Form and upload it to our secure HIPAA weblink. Once we have received your intake form, someone from our team will reach out to schedule a consultation. At your consultation, you can make appointments to receive your vaccinations with us. We look forward to helping you stay healthy during your adventures.
