We encourage all staff and students to come with the appropriate updates on immunizations. These are the following:
These updates are required every 10 years, if you are unsure of your last immunization, check with your doctor. Please, for your own safety, ensure that you are up to date with these before coming to the lecture phase of your school so that you will be prepared in advance for your field assignment. For overseas field assignments we recommend that all staff and students receive further vaccines, these are the following:
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
We encourage you to have these immunizations before joining us as vaccines are expensive and foreign students/staff pay more once they are in the United States. We may also be encouraging students and staff to take medicine to help prevent malaria and to use mosquito nets during the field assignment – this depends on the location of your field assignment. If you would prefer, you can bring malaria medication with you from home or we can purchase this for you here.
