If you are considering a trip abroad, before you finish your TO DO check list, make sure to add travel vaccines. Set an appointment with your provider to discuss what immunizations will be important to have prior to your trip. You will want to set your appointment at least 4-6 weeks prior to your travel date to ensure you have all the vaccines that you need.
If you do not have a primary provider you can call your local county clinic or visit our Where To Go For Your Shots page for a variety of options.
Below we have listed a variety of travel clinics which are held state-wide in various locations. Call or go to the website to locate a clinic near you. You can also walk in to their main site, though we recommend that you call first to save time. Click here for a list of state-wide locations.
Now the question you might have is – What vaccines do I need? We have provided you with a link to the CDC’s destination page so you can look up the immunization requirements for the country or countries you plan to visit.
Now you are all set to go!
While you are at your appointment, don’t forget to ask your doctor to verify that you and your family members are up to date on ALL needed immunizations, not just ones needed for travel.
Protect yourself and your fellow travelers with up to date immunizations!
Have a great trip!
