Immunization Guidelines for Travelers

When traveling for business, you may be more worried about your immunity against the failed merger rather than your disease: getting all the last-minute preparations you set, shots can fall by the wayside, replaced by a desire to get a great shot at landing a client.

However, whether you are traveling for business or pleasure, vaccination is important, especially on international travel. Centers for Disease Control put travel vaccinations in three categories: those who regularly, they recommended, and people who are needed.

Using the CDC guidelines as a guide on your own is one of the best bets to make sure you stay healthy and well when away from home. If you want to know more about travel immunizations, then you can also visit

Routine vaccinations

According to the CDC, vaccination against measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenza type b, and invasive pneumococcal disease in the US are routinely given.

While much of this was given during infancy or childhood, you may well be behind vaccination or too old for vaccination that has been there during your youth. If you fall into both types of categories, is an international trip a good time to make sure all vaccinations are up to date, and to accept that not.

Recommended Vaccinations

Vaccination is recommended by the CDC depends on many factors, especially the purpose of your trip. For example, when traveling to Western Europe, it is recommended that you receive the hepatitis A and hepatitis B vaccination, whereas when traveling to the South Pacific vaccination list is much broader.
