Vaccines for Traveling Abroad
Planning a trip abroad can be a fun and exciting time. However, it can also be overwhelming if you're traveling to an area where specific vaccines are required before you go.

Not all countries require you to get a vaccination, but if you are required, the vaccinations depend on where you're going, the season or time of the year you're traveling, where you're staying (rural or urban area), what you'll be doing on your stay, your age and health, and how long you'll be staying.

How can you plan a safe and fun trip when traveling abroad?

Doug Harley, DO, shares why you need vaccines for traveling abroad and how far in advance you should talk to your doctor about getting them.
