Vaccinations and medication

Travel to certain countries will require one or more vaccinations or the taking of a course of medication to protect against diseases such as malaria, hepatitis A and B, encephalitis, meningitis, polio, rabies, tetanus, typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza. You are strongly advised to schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider at least 6 to 8 weeks prior to your trip to obtain medical advice and start any necessary course of treatment.  Note that these services are typically fee-based and may not be covered by your health insurance.
