Planning a trip? Make UHS’ Travel Medicine Clinic your first stop. We’ve got the information and vaccinations you need to help you stay healthy.


Appointments are required for the Travel Medicine Clinic. You should be seen at least four weeks before your departure.

Insurance and billing

Before making an appointment, consult your health insurance plan for coverage information. Some insurers may require a referral from your primary care provider.

UHS is not a Medicare or MassHealth provider, and cannot bill any secondary insurance if Medicare is the primary carrier. Patients with Medicare or MassHealth coverage will be seen on a fee-for-service basis.


If you have questions before your appointment, call the Travel Medicine Clinic, (413) 577-5124.

Yellow fever vaccination

Travelers to or from certain countries need proof of immunization against yellow fever, a mosquito-borne viral disease.

Yellow fever vaccine must be approved by the World Health Organization and administered by an approved vaccination center.

UHS' Travel Medicine clinic is an authorized yellow fever vaccination provider.

Learn more about yellow fever from the Centers for Disease Control.

International travel insurance

UMass Amherst has purchased an international travel insurance package which provides coverage and services to students participating in university-sponsored and approved international study programs, and to faculty, staff and volunteers on approved international travel for university business.

For information, go to the Forms section of the International Programs Office website. At the top of this page, you'll find a downloadable brochure and insurance card.
