Before studying abroad, we recommend that you consult with your family doctor about obtaining immunizations according to the recommendations of the Center for Disease Control and the recommendations of your specific program. There are also nurses available at the Whitman College Welty Health Center and Walla Walla County Health Department who are familiar with travel immunizations and can be of assistance. Please note that some vaccines require a six-month lead time, so you should look into what immunizations you need well before your study abroad departure date.
Immunizations may be obtained in Walla Walla at the following locations. We recommend calling in advance about hours, fees, and availability of immunizations.
