Taking a tropical vacation will leave you with memories that last a lifetime. However, if you do not take the proper precautions, you may come home from your trip with more than just a sunburn. Many tropical locals require you to get certain vaccines prior to your arrival and others strongly recommend other vaccinations to prevent the potential spread of disease. Protect yourself and your family by being informed and getting vaccinated before you hit the beach!
While many diseases have been eradicated in the United States, some diseases are much more common in other countries. That’s what makes routine vaccines so important! All travelers should be up-to-date on all routine vaccinations, including:
- Hepatitis B
- DTaP, Td, or Tdap (Diptheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis)
- Hepatitis A
Other vaccine recommendations
