Travel Immunizations

The Salt Lake County Health Department offers international travelers the education, immunizations, and prescriptions necessary to stay safe and healthy while abroad.

An appointment is required for all travel immunizations.

Prepare For Your Appointment

It's important for the travel nurse to have all the information below to better understand your travel needs:

  • Full itinerary (including all cities or locations you will be visiting)
  • Travel plans (activities, purpose of your trip, etc.)
  • Medical history
  • Current medications
  • Vaccine history (access records on your smartphone via Docket)

If you are late or do not have the items below completed at least 24 hours before your visit, you will need to reschedule your appointment.

  1. Check your email for an appointment reminder and a link to our Travel Form.
  2. Fully complete the Travel Form at least 24 hours before your appointment.
    EACH PERSON BEING SEEN must complete the form. (If you have appointments for four people in your group, you need to complete the form separately for all four people.)
  3. Submit a copy of your insurance card(s) and all immunization records in the Travel Form.
  4. Please also review the CDC's Vaccine Information Statements for the immunizations you expect to receive.
