International travel can be an exciting opportunity, one which shouldn’t be interrupted by illness. The Womack Army Medical Center Travel Clinic offers travel-related advice to help ensure travelers get the most out of their trip. Services are provided to dependent beneficiaries, retired service members, dependents accompanying active duty service members on permanent change of station (PCS) orders, and active duty Soldiers traveling on leave. Active duty Soldiers on orders for PCS or temporary duty (TDY) must process through the Soldier Readiness Center. Department of the Army employees must process through occupational health and contractors should check with their contracting agency to determine eligibility.
Appointments for international travelers should be made at least 4-6 weeks in advance of travel to allow time for all vaccinations.
The Travel Clinic works in conjunction with the Allergy/Immunology Clinic to provide vaccinations including hepatitis, typhoid fever and yellow fever vaccine, among others.
Travel visit and immunizations are provided in the same general area and can be completed at the same appointment.
Who is eligible for services?
Active duty service members who are not on travel orders, retirees, and beneficiaries.
What services are provided?
Medical recommendation for international travel includes medical advice on health precautions, vaccinations, and medication to prevent malaria, travelers' diarrhea, air/motion sickness and altitude sickness.
**Due to a world-wide vaccine shortage, yellow fever vaccinations will only be provided to active duty at this time.**
**No yellow fever vaccine can be provided to dependents or retirees irrespective of location of travel.**
**Please contact the Travel Medicine Clinic if you have additional questions.**
Appointments should be 4-6 weeks prior to departure to allow for appropriate immunizations to be provided.
