  • Learn about routine vaccines; you should have these vaccines no matter where you plan on traveling.
  • Learn about travel vaccines; you should consider getting these vaccines depending on where you are going and what you will be doing. Check our destination tool and talk to your doctor.

When should I plan to make a doctor’s appointment?

You’ll need to get your vaccines at least a month before you travel to be fully protected.

However, even a last-minute visit to a healthcare provider can be helpful to get medicines and advice for your trip.
