Step 1: Immunizations

As a requirement of the Travel Program, all students must obtain their immunization (vaccination) records and bring a copy to the travel appointment. Obtain your immunization records from your parents, pediatrician, and/or your high school. If you need additional immunizations or vaccinations, you can obtain those at the SHS Nurses' Clinic by appointment.

Step 2: Making an Appointmenttravel_suitcase_edit.jpg

  1. If you are under the care of a therapist, psychiatrist and/or a specialist. You must have travel clearance from them prior to your general clearance. If you come to your student health general clearance appointment without obtaining clearance from your specialist, therapist or psychiatrist, your clearance will be on hold until you do so.
  2. Schedule your general travel clearance appointment. Call Group 1 or 2, or the central scheduling line at (858) 534-3300.
  3. Since many immunizations must be given a number of weeks prior to travel, we recommend scheduling your travel clinic visit at least 6-8 weeks before your departure. Call several weeks ahead to ensure appointment availability.
