What vaccinations or medications do I need?

Published by Noor Trienekens on

Make sure to plan ahead! The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a travel medicine consultation at least 4-6 weeks ahead of your departure, to receive guidance about your trip and vaccinations and medications you may need. Although we are happy to provide suggestions, you should defer to the advice of your healthcare provider.

For immunizations, your provider will likely recommend:
• Updates on routine vaccinations (MMR, Tdap, Varicella, Polio, flu)
• Typhoid vaccine
• Hepatitis A vaccine
• Some travelers may consider Hepatitis B vaccine, rabies vaccine, or Japanese encephalitis vaccine. We do advise travelers to get a rabies vaccination.
