The Duke Student Health Clinic provides pre-travel health exams and vaccinations, and students planning to travel abroad should visit Steps for Planning Your Travel. Please note that as soon as you know your destination, you should begin the process for the pre-travel health exam. Several vaccines are given as a series and can take several weeks to complete. Also, most students travel during academic breaks which increases demand. Planning early enables you to get an appointment and avoid waiting lists and potential vaccine shortages. The clinic will try to accommodate all students, but at peak times it can take up to 6 weeks to get an appointment. Individual appointments are available Monday through Friday, with hours varying depending on the time of year. Appointments and information can be obtained by calling 919-681-9355 (WELL). You should allow 90-minutes for your appointment.
If you are traveling with a group of students, you may be able to been seen as a group for education and immunizations. Have your group leader contact the Clinic for additional information.
Please note that non-Duke students cannot be seen at the Duke Student Health Clinic and should seek pre-travel care with their personal physician or through clinics who specialize in travel care.
