Vaccines for Traveling

Getting vaccinated before traveling abroad is important to protect yourself against diseases that are rare in the United States. The vaccines you will need to travel depend on the following:

  1. Where you are planning to travel. Some countries require proof of certain vaccines.
  2. Your own health. If you are pregnant or immunocompromised, you may need additional vaccines before traveling.
  3. The vaccinations you have already had.

No matter where you are traveling, it is important to get vaccinated 4-6 weeks before you travel. This is so your body has time to respond to the vaccine and start working, and so you have time to receive all necessary doses.
