While enjoying a complete cultural immersion, draw the line at sharing infectious diseases of the host country and bringing them back home! Protect yourself and others from international maladies and make sure you are well acquainted with the immunization shots you need before your next adventure.
Travel Immunization Advice
It’s important to visit your travel health physician as early as possible before traveling. Remember that many vaccinations require several days or weeks to be effective. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that travelers should visit their doctor, at least four to six weeks prior to an international trip.
