Individual Travel Consultations are a critical step in preparation for a safe travel experience. To begin your travel consultation, call Student Health at (573) 341-4284 to schedule your appointment. You will then be given an online travel questionnaire to complete. You must submit this no less than 30 days prior to your travel. 

Walk-in travel appointments will not be accepted due to the amount of research that must take place prior to your travel consultation.

Group travel (e.g. Engineers Without Borders, Miner Challenge, etc.) require a conference with the team leader or advisor in addition to Individual Travel Consultations. Trip leads or advisors can contact to schedule a meeting.



Vaccinations are a key component in your travel planning. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) and WHO (World Health Organization) recommend that ALL travelers have routine vaccines current: 

  1. MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
  2. Polio
  3. DPT (Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus)
  4. Varicella (Chickenpox)
  5. Yearly Influenza vaccine 
  6. Hepatitis A
  7. Hepatitis B
  8. Meningitis

Some areas of overseas travel will require:

  1. Typhoid Vaccine 
  2. Yellow Fever Vaccine
  3. Malaria Medication

Some of the vaccines and medications must be started weeks prior to your travel.  It is critical that you start this process as early as possible. Please make an appointment with Student Health as soon as you know your travel plans.

Please visit the CDC’s website for the most up to date information for travelers for the area you will be visiting.
