International Travel Clinic

When you’re preparing for your next trip abroad, don’t forget to include a visit to the Allegheny Health Network (AHN) International Travel Clinic.

Our infectious disease physicians lower your risk of getting sick so you can have a great trip. You also have access to travel vaccinations you may need.

Travel medicine at AHN: Why choose us?

When you come to our International Travel Clinic, you’ll receive care from infectious disease physicians. These physicians specialize in preventing and treating diseases that are more common in other parts of the world, such as tuberculosis.

With experienced infectious disease specialists, you can count on us for effective care. They provide vaccinations and travel tips that help people avoid infectious diseases. And if you end up getting sick during your trip, we can treat you once you get home. Find out more about the care and prevention of infectious diseases .

We are available before and after your trip:

  • Before your trip: We ask you about your health history, travel destination, and planned activities. We then tailor your preventive care and travel tips to help you stay as healthy as possible.
  • After you come home: If you feel sick, we quickly get to the source of the symptoms using sophisticated diagnostic techniques. We may use molecular testing, which helps us accurately diagnose a broad range of conditions. This information allows us to recommend treatments that help you feel better as soon as possible.

Visiting our international travel clinic: What to expect

At AHN, we offer travel-related care from the same network of physicians you already know and trust. And our infectious disease physicians have access to your health information through our secure electronic medical record. This coordinated approach means you receive effective care based on all aspects of your well-being.

Our international travel clinic is located at:

Allegheny General Hospital 420 East North Ave. East Wing 4th floor, Suite 406 Pittsburgh, PA 15212 (412) 359-3297

Get directions

When you come to our clinic, here’s what to expect:

We ask you about where you are traveling and the activities you have planned. For example, it’s helpful to know whether you’ll be sightseeing in a city or camping in the jungle.

We also ask you about your health, including your vaccination history. If you can’t remember what shots you’ve received, we may be able to find this information in our electronic medical record.

Travel vaccination recommendations

We suggest travel vaccinations that are best for your situation. Your care may include:

  • Routine vaccinations are shots that people need even if they aren’t traveling. Options often include flu and tetanus shots.
  • Recommended vaccinations protect you against disease risks specific to where you are traveling.
  • Required vaccinations are mandatory for certain countries. For example, travel to Saudi Arabia may mean getting a meningococcal vaccination.

Travel safety recommendations

We give you practical tips for staying healthy abroad. These tips may include:

  • Drinking bottled or purified water
  • Staying away from certain foods
  • Washing your hands often
  • Taking preventive medications, such as anti-diarrheals to prevent diarrhea

Travel vaccinations available at AHN

We recommend the shots that are right for you based on your vaccination history and travel plans. For the best results, you should start receiving vaccinations four to six weeks before your trip.

Travel vaccinations we frequently provide are subject to availability and include:

  • Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B
  • Typhoid fever
  • Yellow fever

Sick care after your trip

If you come home sick or start feeling ill shortly after coming back, we are here for you. Make an appointment to see one of our infectious disease physicians if you experience:

  • Diarrhea lasting two weeks or more
  • A fever within a month of coming home
  • Skin problems , including insect bites that look abnormal or rashes that don’t go away

The Immunization Program offers advice for travelers about vaccines, including immunization requirements and recommendations for travel to specific countries. We provide this counseling in-person at our downtown clinic. There is a $20 fee per consultation. This service is NOT provided over email.

If you have any questions, please call us at 412-578-8060 or visit our clinic downtown. See clinic location and hours .

Travel Vaccinations

Our vaccination clinic provides selected vaccines that are recommended for travel outside the United States. All vaccines are administered by our experienced team of Public Health Nurses.

Travel vaccine consultations are only offered in-person at our downtown clinic. There is a fee of $20 per consultation.

Please note: Our clinic is not a full-service travel medicine clinic and does not have travel medicine physicians on staff. We recommend medications for other travel-related issues such as diarrhea and/or malaria; however, you must call your primary care physician to obtain a prescription for these medications.

Forms of Payment

Vaccine fees for travel may be paid by cash, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover. Checks are not accepted. We also do not accept American Express. A fee will be charged for credit or debit card use. Prices for services are subject to change.

We are now able to accept most insurance coverage; please see the Accepted Insurance List (PDF, 1MB) to make sure your insurer is included. We are not able to accept health savings account or flexible spending account funds.

Note: If you intend to pay for services in cash or money order, please pay only the exact amount due. Change is not provided. Also, if using a debit/credit card an additional bank fee is charged. Please call 412-578-8060 for details on costs.

Malaria Prevention

Currently, there is no vaccine that protects against malaria; however, there are medications available to prevent the disease. We can help travelers determine if they need these preventive medications for malaria and which medications may work for their travel destinations.

The clinic is not able to dispense these medications or write prescriptions for them. Travelers must consult their private physicians to prescribe malaria medication. Questions concerning malaria medication’s long-term side effects, drug interactions, or impact on existing medical conditions should also be discussed with your health care provider.

If the Immunization Clinic does not provide a travel vaccine or service that you require, referrals can be made.

International Travel and Immunizations

For residents of the United States, travel outside US borders may pose health hazards which are not present within the US. Some of these health hazards may come from differences in public health practices and some may be related to the natural occurrence of organisms not commonly found in the United States.

Many resources exist for those considering foreign travel:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides extensive information and advice on its Travelers' Health page.
  • The World Health Organization International Travel and Health Guide provides interactive information on health risks for travelers.
  • The Department of State website provides information on health and other travel risks.
  • The United States Customs and Border Protection Service provides legal and regulatory information that can be helpful when planning an international trip.

Immunizations and Planning Ahead

Remember to plan ahead! Complete protection during travel to some locations requires administration of vaccines weeks or even months before your trip.

If you think you will be traveling outside the US, planning your health needs a year in advance is not too soon.

Traveling with Chronic Health Conditions

If you have an existing health condition, you should discuss your travel itinerary with your physician before you leave.

Remember that there are many popular destinations at altitudes which may be uncomfortable or even dangerous for patients with heart or blood diseases. Your doctor can recommend appropriate preparation for your trip.

Traveling with Your Medications

If you are on medication, plan to take printed copies of your prescriptions with you when you travel overseas, as well as sufficient medication for your trip plus some extra in case you are delayed.

Many medications available in the United States are not available overseas and some overseas versions of medications available in the US are not of the same quality.

Try and leave prescription medications in the bottles in which they were dispensed to minimize problems you may have at customs. Be aware that some medications freely available in other countries may not be importable into the United States so be cautious about what you purchase while abroad.

If you are taking prescription narcotics, you should plan to have documentation from your physician regarding your need for such medication.

If you must purchase medications when outside US territories, be sure to do so only from reputable pharmacies. Counterfeiting of medications has been known to occur and these counterfeit drugs may lack the potency of prescription drugs and may even be dangerous.

Traveling with Pets

Domestic pets exist all over the world, but the requirements for pet vaccinations are not uniform across the globe.

Many countries, including the United States, restrict or forbid the transport of animals and even plants over international borders. Some countries, like Canada, allow US visitors to bring pets, but only when they are accompanied by a certificate signed by a veterinarian who has examined the pet within 6 months of travel.

If you are looking to travel with your pet, the following resources may be helpful in planning an international trip:

  • United States Customs and Border Protection Service
  • Animal and Plant Health Inspection System
  • Centers for Disease Control
  • United States Department of State

Please note : Many countries require a quarantine period for certain animals which may far exceed the length of time you will be traveling. Please check with the foreign consular office(s) of the countries you will be visiting for more information on animal quarantine requirements.

Michael Jordan teams with Novant Health to open clinic in Wilmington, North Carolina

Michael Jordan teamed up with Novant Health to expand and provide a medical clinic to Wilmington, North Carolina.

The NBA Hall of Famer’s goal was to bring primary care services to those who were uninsured or underinsured. Jordan and Novant Health previously partnered and opened up two “Michael Jordan Family Medical Clinics” in Charlotte.

With a third on the way, Jordan was glad to provide this care in his hometown.

“Everyone is worthy of access to quality health care, no matter where you live or if you have insurance,” Jordan said, via a release. “I’m truly inspired by the many powerful stories of people who are now thriving thanks to the support of our Charlotte medical clinics. I am confident Novant Health’s new clinic will positively impact individuals and families throughout Wilmington. I’m profoundly grateful to help make this day happen for my hometown.”

According to the release: “The 7,800-square-foot clinic in Wilmington has 12 patient rooms and will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. In addition to the clinic’s primary care team, a community health worker will assist patients with community resources. 

“Patients can schedule appointments at the Greenfield Street clinic by calling 910-833-9100. The clinic team will also support the work of Novant Health’s new Community Care Cruiser to further serve individuals across the region.”

The goal of Jordan is to simply provide more care for those in the area.

“Many of the Charlotte patients never had a primary care provider before they were welcomed into the Michael Jordan clinics,” the release read. “In Charlotte, patients have praised the clinic teams for helping restore health and provide a sense of hope. Dedicated primary care services are having a tremendous impact on people’s lives – one man received treatment for an urgent heart problem and another got the help he needed to turn his life around.”

Novant Health president Ernie Bovio was pleased with Jordan’s $10 million gift to the foundation to make it possible to open two clinics in Wilmington.

'Pure evil': Pennsylvania nurse connected to 17 patient deaths sentenced to hundreds of years

A Pennsylvania nurse connected to the deaths of 17 patients who were given fatal doses of insulin was sentenced Thursday to hundreds of years behind bars.

Heather Pressdee of Natrona Heights pleaded guilty in a Butler County courtroom to three counts of first-degree murder and 19 counts of criminal attempt to commit murder, Attorney General Michelle Henry's office said in a news release .

Presdee, 41, was a nurse at Quality Life Services in before her arrest in May 2023.

Pressdee's crimes began in 2020, with her administering "lethal and potentially lethal doses of insulin" to at least 22 patients at facilities Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler and Westmoreland counties, prosecutors said. Seventeen of the patients "died very soon" or "sometime later" after receiving the insulin doses, according to Henry's office.

'This plea and life sentence will not bring back the lives lost'

Pressdee will be incarcerated for three consecutive life sentences after pleading to the three counts of first-degree murder, plus an additional 380 to 760 years of consecutive jail time for the 19 counts of criminal attempt to commit murder, according to prosecutors.

“The defendant used her position of trust as a means to poison patients who depended on her for care,” Henry said in a statement. “This plea and life sentence will not bring back the lives lost, but it will ensure Heather Pressdee never has another opportunity to inflict further harm. I offer my sincere sympathy to all who have suffered at this defendant’s hands."

Relatives of Pressdee's victims spoke during the registered nurse's sentencing hearing and said they experienced "pain and anguish caused by learning their loved one’s death was not natural, but was caused by a criminal act," Henry's office said.

"She's pure evil," said Melinda Brown, the sister of victim Nicholas Cymbol, according to WTAE-TV of Pittsburgh . "There's no justice for this. We'll get justice when she meets her maker."

Elizabeth Simons Ozella, daughter of victim Irene Simons, told the station that unlike some other victim family members, she will never forgive Pressdee.

"We're angry and hurt that she disguised herself as a caring nurse," she said. "She took someone from this earth that she had no right to take, and she played God when she didn't have that right."

How did Heather Pressdee get caught?

Henry became aware of Pressdee's crimes when her office received a referral in late 2022 regarding a patient under the nurse's care, according to Henry's office. A "comprehensive investigation" ensued and revealed the "numerous deaths" caused by Pressdee's actions.

Pennsylvania state records show Pressdee's registered nurse license was issued on July 31, 2018, and was going to expire at the end of October 2023. The license was renewed in August 2021 and marked active on the Pennsylvania Department of State website in May 2023 before Pressdee's arrest.

Pressdee was also disciplined at 11 former nursing jobs in Western Pennsylvania for "abusive behavior toward patients or staff, and either resigned or was fired from each facility," according to the initial criminal complaint obtained by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review .

Charges against Pressdee were filed in May and November 2023, prosecutors said. Presdee remained incarcerated in Butler County prison since being arrested in her home.

'A very emotional day'

The initial goal for Pressdee's attorneys, Phil DiLucente and James DePasquale, was to avoid the death penalty, which their client did on Thursday.

"This was very hard to accomplish with this many deaths and attempted murder charges that either resulted in death or impairment," DiLucente told USA TODAY.

Before Pressdee had legal counsel, DiLucente said his client "wanted to confess and wanted to show contrition" regarding her crimes.

"Today is a very emotional day," the attorney said. "There's a tremendous amount of sad stories that were given by the victims' family members ... and Mrs. Pressdee did shed a tear several times, as well as apologize at the very end in front of an open court."

While a lot of family members didn't forgive Pressdee for her crimes, some did, which DiLucente said he and DePasquale did not expect.

"That's a little bit different than typical cases we handle," the attorney said.

Heather Pressdee believed 'she was helping'

Pressdee at one time "truly believed" that "she was helping" her patients, DiLucente said.

Before becoming a nurse, Pressdee worked in a veterinary clinic and her job was to euthanize animals, according to the attorney.

Pressdee believed she was ending the suffering of a lot of people by doing what she did, but now "she knows that that's not the case and she apologized for her actions," DiLucente said.

Pittsburgh Steelers to host American Football Youth Camps in Belfast and Cork

Pittsburgh Steelers to host American Football Youth Camps in Belfast and Cork

STEELERS NATION: The Steelers hosted their inaugural American Football Clinic at the Sport Ireland Campus, Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023 in New Dublin, Ireland. Pic credit: Abigail Dean / Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have announced that they will host two American Football camps in both Belfast and Cork this coming June.

The events will be hosted by current Pittsburgh Steelers players who, alongside coaches from American Football Ireland, will provide coaching on skills and techniques, including flag football instruction and drills.

The Steelers previously hosted an American Football Clinic for young Irish athletes at the Sport Ireland Campus in Dublin in November 2023, with Steelers alumni Santonio Holmes and Alan Faneca in attendance.

The camp will take place in Belfast first at Deramore Park on Saturday, June 15 from 2pm to 4:45pm with the event in Cork taking place the following day at the MTU Stadium on Sunday June 16 from 1:30pm to 4:15pm.

Commenting at this announcement on Wednesday, Director of Business Development & Strategy with the Pittsburgh Steelers Daniel Rooney said: “We are excited to return to the island of Ireland for two more American Football camps, this time in Belfast and Cork.

"We are aiming to help grow the game of American Football across the island and we’re looking forward to giving local athletes the opportunity to receive real time coaching and feedback from our current players.”

Spaces are limited and participants must be between the ages of 9 and 18. At each camp, attendees will be divided into age groups 9-14 and 15-18. Each participant will be provided with a Pittsburgh Steelers American Football youth camp t-shirt and a meal at the conclusion of the event.

These camps are the latest team activity being held on the island of Ireland since being granted a license as part of the NFL’s Global Markets Program in May of 2023.

The team has hosted fan and football education events, a sold-out Fan Watch Party at Croke Park in Dublin last November and a first ever Kicking Clinic in April of this year.

The NFL team are now in the planning phases of future upcoming events and marketing activities in Ireland and Northern Ireland, with the Steelers aspiring to host an NFL game on the island in the coming years.

Registration is free and those wishing to attend the event in Cork can sign up by clicking here target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">, while the details of the Belfast camp can be found by clicking here.
