The Health Center NPs can help you prepare to study abroad or head off on your next NCEP trip. We can sign the required Medical Health Statement form, review and administer vaccines recommended for travel, and CDC recommendations for your travel destination. We also can write prescriptions for anti-malaria medication, and recommend medication to treat traveler's diarrhea. There is a $20 charge for a travel consult, which is billed to your student account or can be paid using Carroll Cash. Vaccine prices vary, but the Health Center bills the cost of the vaccine plus a $10 administration fee (see Health Center Fees under handouts section on the right of this page). The Health Center staff will give you a receipt to submit to your insurance if covered through a private insurance plan. If you have the WPS student insurance plan offered through the University, travel vaccines and consults are 100% covered if administered by the Student Health Center.
