At the OSU Family Medicine at Thomas Rardin Travel and Immunization Center we provide comprehensive counseling to international travelers about how to stay healthy while traveling abroad.  We are linked to a state-of-the-art computer database that provides us with the most up-to-date information on health, social, and political situations around the world. We also provide the necessary immunizations and medication prescriptions that may be recommended or required for international travelers’ itineraries.

We recommend that individuals seek our services at least 4 to 6 weeks prior to travel as some immunizations are given in series and require more time to provide adequate immunity or protection to the traveler.  We still encourage our last-minute travelers to seek our services, though, as it is much better to travel with some protection and knowledge than without.

If you're travelling and would like information about what immunizations you may need for any particular trip, we encourage you to visit the federal Centers For Disease Control and Prevention web site at http://wwwn.cdc.gov/travel/default.aspx

Our services are by appointment.  Please call (614) 293-2700 and press option "1" to schedule an appointment.  The Travel and Immunization Center is open at least 20 hours per week with appointment times from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We wish you safe and healthy travel!
