Which vaccines should I get if I'm leaving the conutry?

ANSWER

The vaccines you should get depend on where you're going.

No matter where you’re going, check to make sure you’re up to date on all routine vaccines: measles-mumps-rubella, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, chickenpox, polio, hep B, and the annual flu vaccine.

Most should get vaccines for hep A and typhoid. And many other vaccines are given based on your destination. For instance, if you're going to certain parts of Africa and South America, you must get vaccinated against yellow fever.
