Do I Need To Be Vaccinated Before Traveling?

Vaccination is not necessary for every destination, but for some, it can be literally life-saving. A few countries will not allow you into the country unless you are vaccinated. Many destinations have diseases that are not common in the US or are experiencing a specific outbreak you want extra-protection from.

It is best to plan your pre-trip vaccination around a month in advance. Most vaccines require some time until your protection develops. You also might have a mild reaction to the vaccine itself. You also might need to search for the clinic that has a vaccine you need: for example, the yellow fever vaccine is not readily available at every clinic.
