Travel Vaccines

If you are traveling to certain parts of the world, you will likely need to get certain vaccines before you go.

Depending on where you are going, these immunizations may include some special vaccines that are different from the routine immunizations recommended for children and adults. These special immunizations may include vaccines for typhoid, yellow fever, rabies, or Japanese encephalitis.

The CDC has a list of overseas destinations and the vaccines that you will need before traveling there, as well as other helpful health information for travelers.

If you need to get special immunizations for travel, you should also make sure that you are up-to-date for all of the routinely recommended vaccines too.

Not all doctors have all of the vaccines that may be needed for travel, but there are some clinics in Philadelphia that offer special travel vaccines. Make sure you ask before you go if the clinic has the vaccines you will need.
