Travel Vaccines

In addition to the vaccines in the standard immunization schedule, children and adults often need a few other vaccines when traveling out of the country, including:

  • typhoid vaccine
  • yellow fever vaccine
  • Japanese encephalitis vaccine
  • Meningococcal vaccine (MenC)
  • rabies vaccine
  • an early MMR vaccine – a single dose as early as 6 months of age, while everyone over 12 months of age should have two doses of MMR separated by at least 28 days.

Although not a vaccine, keep in mind that children who are too young to be get the hepatitis A vaccine (less than 12 months old) may need a dose of immunoglobulin to get protected against hepatitis A, if they are traveling to a developing country/hepatitis A endemic area.
