The Travel Clinic is available to students, faculty, staff and the general public (2 years and older).

Registered nurses provide consultations offering CDC recommended immunizations, medical precautions, travel safety, and tips on accessing emergency medical care. Information is provided on general health risks of contracting diseases related to international travel and methods of prevention including vaccinations.

The Travel Clinic is where UGA students can schedule to receive routine vaccines or vaccines required for registration.
