Preparing for Travel Abroad – Plan Ahead

Important notes, read before you schedule an appointment:

Travel health services are not a covered benefit. You will be charged for travel consultations and travel immunizations at Yale Health and all other locations. Travel health services are offered locally at CVS Minute Clinics or Concentra in New Haven.

Helpful tips:

NOTE: The following vaccines are always fee-for-service and not covered by Yale Health, no matter where you receive them:

  • Japanese encephalitis
  • Polio (IPV)
  • Rabies (pre-exposure)
  • Typhoid
  • Yellow fever

You may be advised to get some routine vaccines (e.g., tetanus, flu, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, MMR, and varicella) for your travel. If you are a Yale Health member and get routine vaccines at Yale Health Immunizations they will be covered. Yale Health will not cover nor reimburse for any vaccines given outside of the Yale Health Center.
