When the time comes for you to plan your next dream vacation, make a health checklist so you can enjoy your adventures abroad without getting sick: 

Health requirements will be different depending on your destination and length of stay. Check the CDC website’s Travelers’ Health section to see if you need any immunizations:

  • Tetanus: Within the last 10 years.
  • Measles, mumps, and rubella: If you were born after 1956.
  • Hepatitis A: If you’re traveling to a third-world country.
  • Flu: During fall and winter months. 
  • Yellow fever within 10 years: Keep the CDC yellow card with your passport for proof.
  • Cholera, typhoid, and meningococcal: As needed.
