Immunization Information for Travelers

When traveling outside of the United States, certain shots may be required or recommended. Because some shots require more than one dose for full protection, you should start planning for travel immunizations 4-6 weeks before you are due to leave.

Cost

Health insurance may not pay for the cost of travel-related immunizations. Check with your health insurance company to find out cost details.
