How can I find which vaccines I need when I leave the country?
You can check the “Travelers’ Health” section of the CDC’s website. You can search based on where you're going and any special needs you may have, such as whether you take medicines that affect your immune system, or you’re pregnant. Or maybe you're traveling on a mission trip or for disaster relief, which will take you to an area with few medical resources. The site also includes a “healthy travel packing list” based on what country you'll visit.
