Travel Immunizations


The Salt Lake County Health Department offers international travelers the education, immunizations, and prescriptions necessary to stay safe and healthy while abroad.

To schedule an appointment,
call 385-468-SHOT (7468)

Before you call, please know all countries you’ll be visiting.

The Travel Clinic has two locations in Salt Lake County:

Schedule an appointment with us as soon as you know you’ll be traveling internationally; some immunizations require more than one shot spread over a period of time, and others require time before travel to be most effective.


We do NOT bill insurance for travel vaccines.

Please check with your insurance provider to determine if they will reimburse any cost to you. When calling your insurance company, you can reference the CPT code from the PDF below for each immunization you may need.

We may be able to bill your insurance for other recommended vaccinations  so please provide your insurance information when asked.
