Speak with your health care provider 4-6 weeks prior to your travel departure. You may require pre-travel vaccinations and vaccines need time to take effect.

Depending on where you are traveling, you may need to receive up-to-date vaccinations. Your doctor may say you need a "booster" vaccine. For example, you may need booster vaccines for:

  • Diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (Tdap)
  • Influenza (flu)
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • Polio

You also may require vaccines for diseases that are not common to North America. Some recommended vaccines are:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningococcal
  • Typhoid
