There are many different reasons why people travel abroad. Companies require trips to out-of-country headquarters, students enroll in study abroad programs, or some simply want a sense of adventure. Traveling to a new country exposes you to a culture filled with interesting people, jaw-dropping tourist attractions, and authentic cuisines. The last thing you’d want to be exposed to is a travel-related illness or infection.

Why do I need vaccinations before traveling?

Depending on what country you’re visiting, you may get exposed to illnesses or infections that you wouldn’t normally be exposed to at home. This may cause severe symptoms that your body does not have any immunity to.

Some countries require visitors to be vaccinated before entering the country. This is especially true for countries in Africa and South America, as it’s highly recommended that you receive a yellow fever vaccination prior to visiting countries in these continents.
