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, start planning for travel immunizations four to six weeks before you are due to leave.

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