HEALTH & SAFETY RESOURCES FOR TRAVELERS
University of Utah Health’s Travel Clinic is the most comprehensive travel medicine and immunization clinic in the state of Utah. For individuals, small groups, and business travelers, U of U Travel Clinic provides the following services:
- Appropriate immunizations and travel medications will be recommended based on an individual’s specific destination(s), duration of travel, activities and medical conditions
- Pre- and Post-Travel Consultations
- Special Services/Consultations for Groups and Business Travelers
For additional travel risk management resources, please see our Health and Safety Resources for Travelers page .
University Rule R3-030D defines High-Risk Destination(s) as a country or area the Office of Global Engagement determines is at a high, severe, or extreme risk rating based on risk assessment analysis organizations and providers such as DOS Travel Advisories , CDC Travel Health Notices , Riskline , and Crisis24 .
University travelers should be aware that travel to or through High-Risk Destination(s) carries additional health, safety, and security risks and should work to inform themselves of those risks, how to prevent accidents and mitigate situational severity, and what assistance resources and support is available in the destination(s).
The University recommends that all travelers who are U.S. citizens register their University-related International Travel with the DOS Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (“STEP”) , a free service that alerts travelers about important safety concerns in destination(s) and enables the DOS to better assist U.S. citizens traveling abroad in the event of an emergency. The University recommends that non-U.S. citizens contact their home country governments to inquire about additional available registration and support.
Because the University’s Health and Emergency Evacuation Insurance only provides health, emergency evacuation coverage, and assistance services for University-related International Travel that is properly registered with the University, the University may not be able to help travelers who fail to register their travel appropriately. Travelers who do not register their travel plans with the University consequently risk personal liability exposure and limited access to assistance.
The University strongly encourages family members or friends traveling with University-related International Travel participants to enroll as dependents in employee or student coverage if offered by the University or to investigate and enroll in publicly available international insurance coverage.

Stay safe and healthy when you travel.
Which immunizations do i need to go to another country, where can i find a travel clinic.
Travel clinics are your go-to resource for everything travel related. Utah’s travel clinics can help with everything from immunizations to a list of what to pack for your trip.
How do I stay safe when I travel?
Stay alert and aware of your surroundings. Use the same common sense when you travel that you would at home.
What if I get sick after I travel?
You may get sick during travel but not have symptoms until you get home. Talk to a doctor or healthcare provider if you feel sick after you travel—especially if you have a fever.
Can I drink the water in another country?
Food and water that isn’t clean can cause diarrhea and other diseases. Reduce your risk by sticking to safe food and water habits.
How do I get medical care when I travel?
It’s important to know how you will get medical care if you get sick or have an emergency when you travel.
Is it safe to touch animals in another country?
No. Most animals avoid people. However, animals may attack if they are hurt, sick, feel threatened, or to protect their territory or babies. Animal bites and scratches can lead to serious diseases such as rabies.
How do I protect myself from diseases I can’t get immunized for?
Take steps during travel to stay safe and healthy and avoid experiences that might ruin your trip.
Is it safe to go to another country for a medical procedure?
Millions of US residents travel to another country for medical care each year. But this can be risky. Make sure you understand the risks before you schedule a medical procedure outside the U.S.
Should I buy travel or medical evacuation insurance?
You may want to get travel insurance to cover yourself in case delays, accidents, or illness occur on your trip.
Your health insurance may not cover medical care in another country. Some types of travel insurance help you cover costs if your travel is canceled or disrupted.
How long does it take to get a passport?
It usually takes between 10 and 13 weeks to get a passport. You can pay extra to get it in 7 to 9 weeks.
Follow us on social media for travel tips and updates.
Each country has different immunization requirements to enter the country. Make sure you’re up-to-date on the immunizations you need for your trip.
Why should I get immunized before I leave the U.S.?
It takes about 10 days for most immunizations to start to work and build immunity to disease. And you need more than a shot to protect you from many diseases. This means it may take 6 months or more to protect you from some diseases. Find out which vaccines you’ll need as soon as you know your travel plans. Immunity to disease may be the most important thing you bring with you!
Which immunizations do I need?
- School requirements
- Yellow fever
Do I need a booster for immunizations I’ve already had?
You need a booster dose later in life for most of the immunizations you got as a child to stay protected.
There are certain medical conditions which may prevent a person from receiving a yellow fever vaccination.
Vaccine needs vary considerably from country to country, but the best place to start is with the recommended vaccine schedules for children and adults. In Utah, some vaccinations are required for school entry. However, most of the vaccines that are routinely administered in childhood require periodic booster doses throughout life to maintain an effective level of immunity. Adults often neglect to keep up the recommended schedule of booster vaccinations, particularly if the risk of infection is low. Additionally, some adults have never been vaccinated at all. It is important to realize that diseases such as diphtheria and poliomyelitis, which no longer occur in most industrialized countries, many be present in those visited by travelers. Pretravel precautions should include booster doses of routine vaccines if the regular schedule has not been followed, or a full course of primary immunization for people who have never been vaccinated.
Additional vaccines are advised on the basis of a travel risk assessment for the individual traveler. In deciding which vaccines are appropriate, the following factors should be considered for each vaccine:
- risk of exposure to the disease
- age, health status, vaccination history
- special risk factors
- reactions to previous vaccine doses, allergies
- risk of infecting others

Missionary Vaccine Recommendations

Travel Vaccines Resources
Childhood Immunization Recommendations
Adults Immunization Recommendations
Mandatory vaccination, as authorized by the International Health Regulations, now concerns only yellow fever. Yellow fever vaccination is given for two different reasons:
Travelers should therefore be vaccinated if they visit a country where there is a risk of exposure to yellow fever. They must be vaccinated if they visit a country that requires yellow fever vaccination as a condition of entry. This condition applies to all travelers who arrive from (including airport transit) a yellow fever endemic country.
Travelers should be provided with a written record of all vaccines administered (patient-retained record), preferably using the international vaccination certificate (required in the case of yellow fever vaccination).
To find out which vaccines are needed for the region you will be visiting, you may go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Travelers’ Health website. You will find a wealth of travel information at this site: food and water recommendations, disease outbreak areas, recommended precautions and much more. It’s a great place to start, when planning a trip.
You may also call the Utah Immunization Program Hotline at 1-800-275-0659 for additional questions or information.
If you are planning on traveling out of the country, make sure your immunization needs are assessed and your vaccinations completed in plenty of time to assure immunity. Most vaccines build immunity in approximately one week to ten days. However, immunizing against some diseases requires multiple vaccinations and may take six months or more to complete. Be sure to find out which vaccines you will need as soon as you know your travel plans. Remember that vaccine immunity may be the most important thing you bring with you!

Vacation and travel planning should include thinking about health, Utah doctors say
By emily ashcraft, ksl.com | posted - may 27, 2022 at 5:29 p.m., doctors from the university of utah health travel clinic are urging summer international travelers to prevent travel-related health issues by planning ahead. (spenser heaps, deseret news).
Estimated read time: 4-5 minutes

SALT LAKE CITY — As summer is beginning, many Utahns are planning vacations. Doctors at the University of Utah travel clinic say such planning should include thinking about health. This means immunizations, being aware of health concerns at the travel location and considering insurance.
A University of Utah Health travel clinic helps people prepare for international vacations, and get information about how to make sure that health issues don't interrupt a vacation. Doctors from the clinic urged summer international travelers to prepare and prevent travel-related health issues at a press conference on Friday.
Dr. Jakrapun Pupaibool, assistant professor of infectious diseases at University of Utah Health, said they emphasize taking steps to prepare before travel, although they also address illnesses after travel for people who return with fever, diarrhea, respiratory illness and others.
"We like them to enjoy that trip and not be sick during the trip," he said.
Pupaibool said at the clinic, doctors create a risk assessment considering a vacation's location, length and anticipated activities, along with the health of the individual. Individual recommendations can include immunizations, over-the-counter medications to bring, and even prescription antibiotics to take on the trip and use if needed.
Appointments at the clinic fill up, and it also takes time for some vaccines to become effective, so planning ahead for this is important. Pupaibool suggests meeting with a doctor about six weeks before a trip.
Pupaibool said that data shows about 20-25% of travelers have health issues during a trip or shortly after getting home. He said changes in diet from travel can lead to diarrhea, the most common thing they see. Pupaibool said they can prescribe medication for this before a trip, but travelers should also take over-the-counter drugs with them to address mild diarrhea.
The second most common issue is fever from infections like malaria, which can also be addressed before a trip.
"Many infections that we see, they are preventable ... either by vaccine or by medications," Pupaibool said.
He said some vaccines are required to enter a country or get a visa, but there are even more that they may recommend. Some vaccines, like the yellow fever vaccine, are not available from primary care physicians but are available at the travel clinic. The clinic can also help people get updated on other routine adult vaccines.
Pupaibool also suggests doing research about local medical care before a trip and whether your health or travel insurance will help with international health care.
What about COVID-19 and monkeypox?
Dr. Sankar Swaminathan, chief of the division of pediatric infectious diseases at the U., said part of this is considering COVID-19; people should be careful in airplanes and on a jetway because COVID-19 can spread really quickly. He said the highest risk for contracting COVID-19 is at the airport or on the plane, which is why he wears a mask in these situations.
"Domestic travel is probably just as much of a risk," he said.
Swaminathan also said that when traveling there are other COVID-19 factors to consider based on various countries' travel requirements. The United States still requires a negative COVID-19 test to fly back into the country, meaning it may be a good idea to be prepared in case a traveler needs to stay in the country to quarantine.
"Depending on what your circumstances are and where you're going, trip cancellation or interruption insurance is actually maybe necessary, even if you're not sick," he said, talking about quarantine requirements.
Swaminathan said monkeypox at this point is not a travel-associated concern, but he suggests avoiding risks, specifically having casual sex with people you don't know well.
"People take a lot of risks when they're on vacation. … Unfortunately, what happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas," he said.
He said it could be possible to get monkeypox from having a long conversation, like sitting really close to someone on a plane, but that likely there would need to be liquids exchanged in that conversation.
Swaminathan said that there are other diseases, like Zika, that may burst in a population that doesn't have immunity. He said pregnant women need to be particularly careful about some diseases, like Zika. The clinic also gives updated information about diseases in certain areas.
What about sickness from activities?
Pupaibool said travelers, especially in tropical countries, can deal with other health issues because of the heat and the amount of activity they are doing. He suggests travelers stay hydrated, keep clean bottled water with them and have some electrolytes.
He said if someone gets sick with heatstroke or something similar, they should see a local health care provider.
Pupaibool suggests bringing a simple first aid kit with medications for pain, allergies and inflammation.
Swaminathan said their office provides a booklet that talks about health issues associated with altitude, scuba diving and a variety of other things, which is available at the clinic and at public health department satellite travel clinics.
"It's good to think about this well ahead of time," he said.

Make The Most of Your Virtual Urgent Care Appointment
When COVID -19 cases began rising at an alarming rate in 2020, virtual urgent care became an increasingly important part of healthcare. Since then, it has evolved as a routine way to get care for common illnesses like colds, sinus infections, pink eye, some urinary tract infections, and yes even COVID. It is not for serious medical emergencies like strokes or heart attacks.
Advantages of Virtual Urgent Care
It is a great option when you:
- Don’t want to spread infection.
- Feel sick and don’t want to leave the house.
- Have young children at home and no babysitter.
- Have difficulty getting transportation.
- Have a compromised immune system and don’t want to be around other people.
Disadvantages of Virtual Urgent Care
- Your healthcare provider can’t do an in-person physical exam or assessment of vital signs so the virtual visit can’t be used for problems like ear infections, severe abdominal pain, chest pain, or certain respiratory issues.
- It is also unsuitable for conditions that require X-rays or tests for diagnosis such as strep throat or diabetes.
Preparing for Your Appointment
- You will need strong internet or mobile phone service, a working camera on your computer, tablet or phone, and good sound.
- Let your healthcare provider know if you need accommodations such as an interpreter.
- Read all instructions emailed to you ahead of the visit.
Can I get a prescription as part of the virtual visit?
Yes. The healthcare providers who handle virtual urgent care appointments are physician assistants, physicians, or nurse practitioners who can prescribe common drugs such as antibiotics or cough medicine. This program is not for refilling medications you take every day, such as high blood pressure or cholesterol medications. Controlled substances or narcotics will also not be prescribed over a virtual visit.
Does insurance cover virtual care visits?
Most private health insurance policies and Medicare now cover virtual care or telehealth visits. It is best to check your policy.

Russia establishes special site to fabricate fuel for China’s CFR-600
A special production site to fabricate fuel for China’s CFR-600 fast reactor under construction has been established at Russia’s Mashinostroitelny Zavod (MSZ - Machine-Building Plant) in Elektrostal (Moscow region), part of Rosatom’s TVEL Fuel Company.
As part of the project, MSZ had upgraded existing facilities fo the production of fuel for fast reactors, TVEL said on 3 March. Unique equipment has been created and installed, and dummy CFR-600 fuel assemblies have already been manufactured for testing.
The new production site was set up to service an export contract between TVEL and the Chinese company CNLY (part of China National Nuclear Corporation - CNNC) for the supply of uranium fuel for CFR-600 reactors. Construction of the first CFR-600 unit started in Xiapu County, in China's Fujian province in late 2017 followed by the second unit in December 2020. The contract is for the start-up fuel load, as well as refuelling for the first seven years. The start of deliveries is scheduled for 2023.
“The Russian nuclear industry has a unique 40 years of experience in operating fast reactors, as well as in the production of fuel for such facilities,” said TVEL President Natalya Nikipelova. “The Fuel Division of Rosatom is fulfilling its obligations within the framework of Russian-Chinese cooperation in the development of fast reactor technologies. These are unique projects when foreign design fuel is produced in Russia. Since 2010, the first Chinese fast neutron reactor CEFR has been operating on fuel manufactured at the Machine-Building Plant, and for the supply of CFR-600 fuel, a team of specialists from MSZ and TVEL has successfully completed a complex high-tech project to modernise production,” she explained.
A special feature of the new section is its versatility: this equipment will be used to produce fuel intended for both the Chinese CFR-600 and CEFR reactors and the Russian BN-600 reactor of the Beloyarsk NPP. In the near future, the production of standard products for the BN-600 will begin.
The contract for the supply of fuel for the CFR-600 was signed in December 2018 as part of a governmental agreement between Russia and China on cooperation in the construction and operation of a demonstration fast neutron reactor in China. This is part of a wider comprehensive programme of cooperation in the nuclear energy sector over the coming decades. This includes serial construction of the latest Russian NPP power units with generation 3+ VVER-1200 reactors at two sites in China (Tianwan and Xudabao NPPs). A package of intergovernmental documents and framework contracts for these projects was signed in 2018 during a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
