Determining which travel vaccines are needed to keep you healthy while traveling outside the United States is best determined by a qualified travel doctor. If you are planning an international trip for business, vacation, adoption, relief work or as a student abroad, getting the right medical advice in regards to travel immunizations can be tricky. Often travelers become frustrated as they search for a list of the travel shots that will be required for their trip. The truth is, no such list exists. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization can only provide timely travel health requirements at an international health level as there are just too many variables, too many travelers, too many reasons for travel, and too many borders crossed to produce an accurate list of travel shots.
Routine, Recommended and Required
As budgets continue to be cut at public health care facilities, international travelers have become increasingly dependent upon today's travel medicine clinics and travel doctors to determine which Routine, Recommended and Required travel vaccines are needed based upon the traveler's health history, present health conditions, trip itineraries, purpose of travel and time of year that particular regions of the world are visited. Travel diseases such as yellow fever or malaria are typically the first illnesses that come to mind for a less-experienced traveler. Protection against these deadly diseases can be extremely important and are often heavily regulated if you travel in endemic regions of the world. However, many travelers overlook the importance of staying current on Routine vaccinations for many diseases that are still problematic in many under-developed regions.
Travel Vaccination Center
The only travel vaccination center regulated by International Health Regulations is one where yellow fever shots are administered. In the United States, the CDC working in conjunction with approval for each individual state's health department provides a listing of approved yellow fever vaccination centers. At CareSpot, our Travel Medicine Centers have been approved to administer the yellow fever vaccine and provide international travelers with a yellow fever certificate for travel to restricted regions where the disease is endemic. If your trip abroad includes travel to countries where yellow fever or malaria remain a persistent health risk, it is imperative to make an appointment for a consultation with a qualified travel doctor to determine your exact needs for travel immunizations. For a detailed listing of the CDC's Routine and Recommended travel vaccinations, use our website's "Find Your Destination" locator or interactive world map to select the appropriate country or countries for your international trip itinerary.
