A $25 yellow fever vaccine assessment charge will be billed to you upon submission of this questionnaire. This charge is in addition to the $200 charge for the yellow fever vaccine. You will indicate on this form your preferred time slots for an appointment. A travel health provider will review the questionnaire and contact you regarding whether you are eligible to receive the vaccine, and you will receive an appointment time.
What will happen when I come in for an appointment?
After you check in at the front desk, you will go to the Immunization Clinic on the first floor of Campus Health. The immunization nurse will administer Yellow Fever Vaccine.

This charge is not billed to insurance and will be your responsibility to pay.
