Know Before You Go

Travel volumes during the spring break season (mid-February to mid-April) are estimated to exceed pre-pandemic levels. Whether you're staying close to home or traveling internationally, take steps to prepare so you can stay safe and healthy during your trip.

Stay up to date.

Make sure you are up to date on routine vaccines. Some diseases are not common in the United States due to routine vaccination but are still common in other countries.

Be informed.

For your specific health needs, know how to get medical care abroad it you are sick or injured. Check your health insurance to see if it includes international travel coverage. Know the health risk at your travel destination. Learn local warning systems, evacuation routes and shelters. Preparation can help avoid physical illnesses as well as travel-related mental stress.

Pack a travel health kit.

Bring a kit with items you may need, especially those items that may be difficult to find at your destination. Include prescription and over-the-counter medicines (enough to last your whole trip, plus a little extra) for illnesses such as diarrhea, allergies, motion sickness and pain or fever. Depending on your destination, you may also want to pack sunscreen, insect repellent and water disinfection tablets. First-aid supplies should include bandages and antiseptic. Remember health insurance cards and copies of prescriptions.

Have a plan.

Be prepared if an emergency occurs while you are traveling. Keep a list of emergency contacts with you and share travel plans and important documents with your designated contact person in case you lose them during travel.
