While no immunizations are required by law for the countries we visit, JCU strongly encourages receiving immunizations recommended by the Center for Disease Control. The immersion program will offer an opportunity every semester to receive immunizations from a medical professional at JCU’s Health Center.
Students may choose to visit their own doctor. All immunizations must be paid for by the student participant. Immunizations costs are above and beyond the cost of the immersion. The cost of visiting with the doctor at the Health Center is $37.50 plus the cost of the individual immunizations which average around $50 per shot. A list of the current prices can be found here.
