The UChicago Comer Children's Pediatric Travel Medicine Clinic offers complete travel care, ranging from consultation, immunizations and preventative medicine to post-travel care in the event of an illness.

During your visit, a member of the pediatric infectious diseases team will meet with you to discuss the details of your trip, your medical history and your current health status. With the use of a travel disease database, our team will advise you of the required and/or recommended immunizations. Most of our patients are able to receive immunizations on-site or prescriptions for preventive medicine during their initial visit.

In addition to providing expert medical care, our staff will inform you of general travel health guidelines, such as food, water and insect precautions. You will also be advised of health risks and disease outbreaks for the region where you are traveling. At the end of your consultation, you will receive written information specific to your destination and a list of vaccinations you may have received during your visit.

Consultation & Group Rates

When coming for immunizations, a pre-travel consultation fee applies [in order for the physician to evaluate the medical appropriateness of the requested vaccinations]. You qualify for a group evaluation rate if you are traveling with another person and both of you can be evaluated together at the same time. This is ideal for families who do not mind sharing their health histories.

Preventive Medicine

Preventive medications for diseases, such as malaria, and medications for common travel illnesses, such as diarrhea, are also available at the clinic.

Post-Travel Care

In the event of an illness during or after your trip, we are available for post-travel diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. For example, we can perform blood tests to diagnose malaria and stool tests for parasites.
