In general, travel to Europe, Canada, and the United States does not require a travel consultation. Visit the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Travel site for information regarding health risks associated with travel to your specific destination. Many destinations have required or recommended immunizations or medications which must be obtained prior to departure.
Students who use regular medications, have special dietary needs or have other medical or mental health concerns are strongly encouraged to schedule a travel consult regardless of the destination. Your provider can help to identify resources to support your health during travel.
There may be charges for recommended vaccines. Please call the Billing Office at 603-646-9400 with questions regarding charges.
For students enrolled in the Dartmouth Student Group Health Plan (DSGHP), Dartmouth College Health Service is the only approved provider in the Hanover area. Travel consults are provided at no charge for all enrolled Dartmouth students, regardless of health insurance provider.
Travel consults are booked via the Health Services Online link in Banner/DartHub. You will complete a travel itinerary when you book a travel consult appointment. Be sure to have your itinerary finalized - including all side trips – prior to scheduling, so that your provider can give you the best information. Plan ahead and book early, as recommended travel vaccines should be administered one month prior to travel.
Bring records of any travel immunizations you have received in the past to the appointment. You should also have a copy of your complete itinerary.
