Planning ahead is the key to a safe and enjoyable travel experience. Before packing your suitcase for a destination abroad, take a few moments to ensure that you are adequately immunized. Dependent upon your travel plans (and personal health history) one or more vaccines may be recommended or required for safe travel to your destination.
All travel immunizations at Clermont County Public Health are given based on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Immunization recommendations and requirements for your destination can be found by visiting the CDC website at http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel.
It is important to note that most immunizations must be received well in advance of planned travel in order to offer the best protection from disease. Additionally, several immunizations are given in a series which may require a longer amount of time to complete. Plan on scheduling your appointment one to six months in advance of your departure.
