Updated polio vaccination recommendations in Chapter 3, Travel Vaccines & Malaria Information, by Country

August 27, 2013

We have updated the polio vaccination recommendations in Chapter 3, Travel Vaccines & Malaria Information, by Country based on changes documented in the Clinical Update: Polio Vaccine Guidance for Travelers and Note on Travel to Israel, summarized below.

CDC recommends that all international travelers be fully vaccinated against polio.

CDC recommends an adult inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV) booster dose only for travelers to countries with active poliovirus circulation. Countries are considered to have active poliovirus circulation if they have ongoing endemic circulation, active polio outbreaks, or environmental evidence of active wild poliovirus circulation.

In addition, CDC recommends an adult IPV booster dose for certain travelers to some countries that border areas with active poliovirus circulation. These recommendations are based on evidence of historical cross-border transmission. The recommendations apply only to travelers with a high risk of exposure to someone with imported wild poliovirus (WPV) infection. These travelers would include those working in health care settings, refugee camps, or other humanitarian aid settings.
