Inoculations and Vaccines

There are no countries visited by Explorica tours that require any inoculations or vaccinations, but it is recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention that an individual be up-to-date with his or her routine vaccinations before traveling to any foreign country.

Additionally, travel to certain countries puts an individual at a higher risk for contracting certain diseases; as a result, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all individuals be vaccinated, or take preventative medication, for these diseases to avoid illness. For more information, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Destination page for country and region-specific information on recommended vaccines.

When to get vaccinated

Travelers should schedule an appointment with their travel medical provider 4-6 weeks prior to their departure date, as most vaccines take time to become effective or must be administered in a series. For more information on when to get your vaccines, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Vaccinations page.
