A lot of planning goes into an international vacation. Besides booking flights, hotels and tours, you need to take your health into consideration. I’m talking about health insurance, although you should have that too. I’m talking about vaccinations. Yes, vaccinations are either recommended or required for most countries especially in areas where yellow fever, rabies, Cholera and hepatitis are common.
The best way to find out which ones you need is to call your local travel vaccination clinic. They will provide you with all the health information you need for your destination and they will also book an appointment for you to get your shots.
While many countries don’t require vaccinations, some may recommend them and it’s a good idea to have them anyway. If you are traveling to a country that requires them, you’ll need to show proof along with your boarding pass and passport.
