Travel Health

A Travel Health appointment offers pre-travel counseling, immunizations, and health advice for those planning to travel out of the U.S. All required travel immunizations are available at Watkins. (Availability may depend upon nationwide/manufacturing vaccine shortages.)

If you will be traveling abroad and need immunizations or preventative medications, please call the Appointment Line at 785-864-9507 and request a "travel abroad appointment.” During your appointment, a provider will review which immunizations are recommended and required for your planned itinerary. A provider will also review recommended preventative medications, most current travel advisories, and safety/travel tips specific to your destination. To ensure you receive the most current information and recommendations, it is important to bring all immunization records available to your appointment. Please also bring your yellow international travel vaccination booklet, if you have one.
