Going abroad? Learn about the vaccines you need to travel safely and see a travel health specialist four to six weeks before your trip.

Remember to pack good health for your trip! Vaccines are your passport to adventure around the world.  Some vaccines may even be required for you to travel to certain places.  Protect yourself and your community by getting vaccinated before you travel. 

Know before you go: which vaccines do you need for your trip?

Go to the CDC Travel Health site to learn about vaccines and other important information to stay healthy while you travel.

  • Do you have altered immunocompetence due to illnesses such as diabetes or HIV?
  • Are you pregnant or breastfeeding?
  • Are you traveling with infants or children?
