A note on vaccines: Trinidad currently requires all visitors to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Students who are not fully vaccinated will not be allowed in the country, and therefore cannot attend this trip. To get your COVID vaccine on campus, visit student health services.

Other vaccines may be suggested leading up to the trip as situations change. Students in the past have been vaccinated against yellow fever, hepatitis A and B, and rabies. The study abroad leaders will keep each group up to date on which vaccines are recommended before the trip.
