Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage
Due to a current nationwide shortage, the University Health Center (UHC) does not have the yellow fever vaccine at this time.
If you are traveling to a country that requires proof of yellow fever vaccination prior to entry—such as Ghana, a popular Global Education Oregon (GEO) destination—you will need to have your travel consult at a clinic that has either yellow fever vaccine or an alternative vaccination called Stamaril. GEO and the UHC travel team can help you coordinate this, if needed.

Preparing for Your Visit
As soon as you know your plans, please call UHC at 541-346-2770 to make your travel appointments. Travel services are in high demand in the spring months, so please plan ahead.
Before appointments can be made, travelers should complete a travel worksheet that includes a travel itinerary. This travel worksheet can be obtained at the GEO office, at the UHC Nurse Specialty Clinic, or completed online by logging in to myUOHealth and completing the pre-travel worksheet, found in the Forms section.
Travelers must complete the travel worksheet before appointments can be made. Completed worksheets can be dropped off at the Nurse Specialty Clinic or faxed to 541-346-9093.
For most UO-sponsored study abroad programs (such as GEO) and many other programs (CIEE, Semester at Sea), travelers need to complete several forms and have them signed by health professionals. Please remember to bring all forms to your appointments.
Group travel consults are also available for many destinations.
