Travel Vaccinations:

The US government recommends certain vaccinations for all passengers travelling abroad. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) maintains an updated list of all recommended vaccines for travelers leaving the United States, which varies by travel region. The only ‘required’ vaccination is for yellow fever for travelers headed to certain countries in sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America.

The”routine” vaccinations are those that are normally administered during childhood in the United States. These include immunizations for:

  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Varicella
  • Poliomyelitis (Polio)
