International Travel Health Clinic

When you’re planning to travel internationally, our infectious disease providers can help you prepare for safer, healthier travel. During  a pre-travel consultation we  discuss your travel plans to ensure you have the immunizations, medications and destination-specific health information you need prior to leaving.

Whether you're traveling for business, vacation, to volunteer, visit family and friends, or study, it's important to see a doctor who specializes in the diseases and health problems associated with overseas travel.

NOTE: We DO NOT offer COVID-19 tests ¬at this location. If required for travel, contact your primary care provider.

Schedule & Prepare for Your Appointment

The best time for a pre-travel consultation is six to eight weeks before your trip. However, you can benefit from a medical consultation up to the day of travel. For an appointment, call (319) 363-3565.

Bring your itinerary, vaccine records, your WHO International Certificate of Immunization (yellow book), if you have one, and a list of medications you are taking.

Which Shots You Will Need

Our infectious disease specialists will determine if you need any vaccines by assessing where and when you are traveling, your past vaccinations and health history. We offer the following vaccinations:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Influenza
  • Japanese encephalitis
  • Meningococcus
  • Measles-mumps-rubella
  • Polio
  • Pneumococcus
  • Malaria
  • Tetanus/diphtheria/acellular pertussis
  • Typhoid fever
Insurance Coverage

We accept most major forms of insurance. Check with your primary care doctor first to see if you need a referral. Also check with your insurance company regarding what services will be covered, prior to your appointment. All uncovered services will be the responsibility of the traveler.

Additional Services

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Test
Pulmonologists at UnityPoint Clinic Multi-Specialty in Cedar Rapids diagnose and determine severity of OSA through using sleep studies conducted at the Eastern Iowa Sleep Center. Our providers then treat and manage the disorder. If CPAP/BiPAP machines are part of the treatment plan, we coordinate with medical equipment companies for their use. If you have symptoms of OSA, including snoring, chronic fatigue or obesity, talk to your primary care provider about a referral to UnityPoint Clinic Multi-Specialty for a sleep study.
Lung Care

The pulmonary providers at UnityPoint Clinic Multi-Specialty in Cedar Rapids offer screenings, diagnosis and treatment for patients with lung nodules or lung cancer. We connect patients with lung cancer experts to build a comprehensive treatment plan and help schedule procedures such as thoracentesis (sampling of fluid outside the lung), bronchoscopies and lung biopsies. We also insert and manage lung drainage systems.

If you have suspicion of lung cancer, an abnormal CT lung scan or a lung nodule, ask your primary care provider for a referral to one of our pulmonologists.

Smoking/Vaping Cessation

Studies show individuals who would like to quit smoking or vaping have a greater chance of success when assisted by a healthcare professional. Through the Smoking/Vaping Cessation program at UnityPoint Clinic Multi-Specialty in Cedar Rapids, a nurse practitioner determines the most appropriate method to break your addiction to nicotine by using a combination of counseling and medicine. Our team works alongside patients during their quit attempt to prevent relapse.

For more information or to enroll in the Smoking/Vaping Cessation program, contact UnityPoint Clinic Multi-Specialty at (319) 363-3565 or ask your primary care provider for a referral.
