Ask CDC – Travelers’ Health
To find out about other vaccines and medications you might need:
- Go to the CDC Travelers’ Health Website,
- Under For Travelers, use the drop-down menu to select your destination.
- Read the Vaccines and Medicines chart.
Not all the vaccines and medicines in this chart are appropriate for everyone. You should talk to a doctor (ideally, at least 4 to 6 weeks before your trip) to find out which vaccines and medicines are right for you.
Remember that not all illnesses can be prevented by a vaccine, so review the Stay Healthy and Safe section on the destination page and read Your Survival Guide to Safe and Healthy Travel for information on other steps you can take to protect your health.
For general information on ways to stay healthy and safe when you travel, visit the Travelers’ Health Website.
