Traveler's Clinic

Guidance for international travelers

Through a weekly Travelers Clinic, the UC Davis Infectious Diseases team provides expert medical consultation for those planning international trips, including information on:

  • mmunizations, vaccines and other preventive therapies
  • Food- and beverage-borne risks
  • Diseases associated with insects
  • Stress, sleep, motion sickness and jet lag

Before you leave

International travelers should review the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Travel Health Notices” website before finalizing their plans. The regularly updated site has important information on current health issues, including disease outbreaks and natural disasters, in specific destinations along with recommended precautions: Watch Level 1 (practice usual precautions), Alert Level 2 (practice enhanced precautions) or Warning Level 3 (avoid nonessential travel). Travel Health Notices

The goal is to provide detailed guidance prior to departure so your travels are free of health worries.

Travelers who develop medical problems either during or within two months of return are also advised to contact the clinic for diagnostic testing and treatment. Symptoms of particular concern include fever, diarrhea, skin lesions or rashes.

The clinic is located in the Lawrence J. Ellison Ambulatory Care Center at 4860 Y St. in Sacramento. To schedule an appointment, call 916-734-2737 and select option 1.
