Learn Before You Go!

Travel Health ResourcesAn educated traveler is a healthy traveler. Find information from reliable sources such as the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to learn about diseases, country entry requirements, and recommended vaccines.

Except for yellow fever, very few vaccinations are "required" but many are "recommended." Travelers should get recommended vaccines to protect themselves from illness. The Travel and Tropical Medicine Center at Sansum Clinic helps patients prioritize their protection issues specific to their individual itinerary.

Ask the Travel and Tropical Medicine Center for other useful resources specific to your particular health situation or travel itinerary.
