Travel Medicine Information

Womack Army Medical Center's Travel Medicine provides medical guidance to beneficiaries who have international travel plans. Customized information packets are prepared to include health risks in each country visited together with required vaccinations, suggested health precautions, and emergency embassy contact information. Prescriptions for vaccinations, travelers' diarrhea, air/motion sickness, altitude sickness and/or malaria prevention may be written for all beneficiaries.

Travel Medicine services are available to dependent beneficiaries, retired service members, dependents accompanying active duty service members on PCS orders, and active duty soldiers traveling on leave. Active duty soldiers on orders for PCS or TDY must process through the Soldier Readiness Center. DA employees must process through Occupational Health.

Appointments for international travelers should be made at least 4-6 weeks in advance of travel in order to allow time for all vaccinations. The Travel Medicine staff relocates to the Allergy and Immunology Clinic on Wednesday afternoons to provide a "one-stop shop" to beneficiaries.

The Immunization Healthcare Branch is responsible for the Travel Medicine services. The Immunization Healthcare Branch is located at Bldg 1-2532 Armistead St, Monday-Friday 0730-1630.
