Traveling Abroad

It is very important to discuss your general health and immunization needs with a travel health expert prior to traveling abroad.  If you have questions concerning your destination, such as what foods are safe to eat, what vaccinations are needed, and how to protect yourself from insect bites, the health-care professionals at the Overseas Travel Clinic at The University of Toledo Medical Center are here to assist with all your travel needs.  Our staff are trained in infectious diseases and travel medicine to guide you on a safe trip and provide the latest information. You will leave your clinic visit prepared and ready to start your international adventure.

Making and Preparing for Your Appointment

An appointment with the Overseas Travel Clinic is encouraged for anyone who is traveling to a country endemic for malaria, typhoid, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis or to altitudes above 10,000 feet, who may need self-treatment for travelers’ diarrhea and other travel-related conditions or any of the following vaccinations: meningococcus, Hepatitis A, and routine childhood vaccinations and booster shots. 

Based on your itinerary, the staff will provide targeted advice and appropriate immunizations and prescriptions for the prevention or treatment of health issues that you may encounter during your travels.

Because some vaccines take time to work or require multiple doses, it is important to schedule our appointment at least four to six weeks prior to departure.

You can schedule an appointment with one of the following:

Dr. Geehan Suleyman

Dr. Deepa Mukundan

Janet Moore, NP

Bring the following documents:

  • A copy of your immunization history
  • A list of places you will travel with dates

Location

The clinic is located in the Ruppert Health Center on the UTMC campus. 

To schedule an appointment, call 419-383-3780.

Returning From Travel

Returning travelers who develop medical issues from traveling are encouraged to contact us.  If you have any specific questions on what symptoms to be aware of, please speak with the Overseas Travel Clinic physician at your appointment prior to travel.  In general, travelers should be on the lookout for fever, persistent diarrhea, skin rash or ulcer. If you experience one or more of these symptoms, it is best to seek a specialist for diagnosis or treatment.
