Stay Healthy While Traveling

When you are checking off your list of things to do before taking a trip outside of the country, don’t forget your Travel Medicine appointment.

We offer pre-travel counseling, required immunizations, water/food safety education, and other health-related traveling tips for people planning international travel.

Our Travel Medicine specialist reviews how your medical history relates to your specific travel plans. We’ll research where you are traveling and share with you the most up-to-date information, including:

  • Immunizations and medications: what you may need and when you need it.
  • Recent local health concerns: what’s the latest local health news?
  • Dietary advice: what to eat and what to avoid.
  • Availability of health care in the area: what’s available and when.
  • Potential political unrest and other safety issues: how it could affect you.
  • Follow-up care upon your return: scheduling it before you go.

Appointment Scheduling

Anyone requiring pre-travel immunizations should call to schedule an appointment. Many travel-related immunizations are needed at least 30 days prior to traveling. Make your travel medicine appointment as you begin to plan your trip. Ideally, it should be at least six weeks prior to your trip. The earlier the appointment, the more time immunizations have to take effect.

To schedule a Travel Medicine appointment:
• St. Cloud and Sartell locations, call 320-200-3200
• Willmar location, call 320-441-5313

While many services are covered by insurance, it is important for you to check with your insurance provider to determine whether these travel medicine services are covered by your plan.
