All children who travel abroad with their families should receive a medical consultation before their trip. The most common illnesses associated with international travel are easily preventable and include diarrhea, respiratory tract infections, malaria and skin diseases. Other common diseases include parasites, liver disease, fever, and animal bites.

The UCLA International Travel Clinic provides appropriate and effective pre- and post-travel counseling, including travel immunizations, specialized for pediatric patients. Our services are tailored to the individual's age, medical history, destination and length of stay, ensuring that your child receives age-appropriate information that is specific to a particular country. We also provide preventive care to young adults who are planning to travel, study abroad, serve in the Peace Corps or engage in internships or employment opportunities.

Our services include:

  • General medical evaluation and treatment (pre- and post-travel)
  • Country-specific information about disease risk and prevention
  • Appropriate vaccine administration (such as yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Typhoid, Rabies, Polio)
  • Prescription of medication to prevent diseases (such as anti-malarial or other prophylactic medications)
  • Guidance about seeking medical assistance abroad for travel-related illness
