Health Information

  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that all travelers be up to date on routine vaccinations such as measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus vaccine, varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, and your yearly flu shot before every trip. These are only recommendations.
  • Consult with a healthcare practitioner or the UHS about what vaccines and medicines you will need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the U.S. Please see the Health Clearance Form to assist with your visit.
  • Please consult your physician for additional information and recommendations based on your individual circumstances.
  • All students attending a study abroad program with Clayton State University must complete the Health Clearance Form and be cleared to travel. See the form for more details.
  • Students should take their time while filling out the Health Clearance Form.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to self-report & disclose current information, medications, or any conditions that might require assistance or resources abroad. The more the Program Director and Study Abroad Office are aware of, the more we can prepare and be informed to assist students while traveling overseas. In addition, consulting your primary care physician or the UHS can assist with any medical recommendations or health concerns you may have.
  • Example: If you require an Epi-Pen for a food allergy, this information is important for the Program Director to note in case they need to avoid the substances in your food throughout the program, especially for any preplanned meals. This would be something that you would want to mention on your Health Clearance Form.

Consult the CDC Website


Meet with the UHS

To complete the Health Clearance Form, meet with your primary care physician or with the University Health Services (UHS) on campus. Make an appointment with the UHS and don't forget to take your Health Clearance document with you!
