Health Services

Accidents and illnesses which require medical attention can be very expensive and we encourage all EGS students to make the appropriate arrangements for health insurance coverage from their home countries well in advance of their departure. It is also crucial to make sure that your routine vaccinations are completely up-to-date before you leave. Routine vaccinations, given at every stage in life, include the following: measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), polio, influenza, diphtheria/pertussis/tetanus (DPT), and chickenpox (varicella). The vaccination for Hepatitis B is also recommended.

If you plan on traveling to more than one country, you should indicate all travel destinations to your health-care provider so that they can inform you of the necessary vaccinations and health advisories in effect. It's recommended that you speak to your health-care provider between four and six weeks before your time of travel so that your immunization history, personal health and planned activities can all be taken into consideration in determining what you will need for your trip.

Make sure that you have an adequate amount of your prescription medicines to last you through your trip. It is recommended to keep them in their original packaging, and to bring them with you in your carry-on baggage. If they include liquids, then consult the security guidelines of your airline. Drugs made available by prescription in your home country may be illegal in other countries to which you are traveling. A good resource to check is the US Department of State for further information.
