Planning for Healthy Travel

International travelers can take a number of simple steps to avoid potential health problems before, during, and after travel. International travelers should contact their physicians, local health departments, or private or public agencies to receive current health information on the countries they plan to visit at least 4-6 weeks before travel. At that time, schedule an appointment to obtain vaccinations, recommended medications and to address any special needs.

Travelers should be aware of the occurrence of any disease outbreaks in their international destinations. Current travel notices on diseases of international concern are posted on the Travelers' Health home page on the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/travel.


Required Vaccinations

The only vaccine required by International Health Regulations is yellow fever vaccination for travel to certain countries in sub-Saharan Africa and tropical South America. Meningococcal vaccination is required by the government of Saudi Arabia for annual travel during the Hajj.


Recommended Vaccinations

These vaccines are recommended to protect travelers from illnesses present in other parts of the world and to prevent the importation of infectious diseases across international borders. Which vaccinations you need depends on a number of factors including your destination, whether you will be spending time in rural areas, the season of the year in which you are traveling, your age, health status, and previous immunizations.
