face at your specific destination? Do you know if certain
vaccinations will be required? Are you aware of how to
protect yourself from food and waterborne disease?
This and many other questions can be answered at the
Salina-Saline County Health Department through our Foreign
Travel Consultations Service. This is done by appointment
only. When you call the foreign travel nurse (826-6602), be
prepared to name the countries/cities that you will visit, and
the dates of travel. Bring your immunization record and
insurance card to the visit. Contact the foreign travel nurse a
minimum of 6-8 weeks before your trip.
Recommendations for vaccines are made in accordance with the
Center for Disease Control guidelines. Traveler health and
safety concerns are discussed, and malaria prophylaxis
(prevention) is recommended according to risk based on itinerary
of travel with the country. These appointments typically
last one-half to one hour per person. This allows time to
discuss all concerns, complete official documentation, and
administer indicated immunizations.

B, Meningococcal Vaccines, MMR, Pneumococcal Vaccine, Polio,
