Summer travel: Vaccination information

travelers with suitcases

Many countries have specific vaccine requirements for entry. A travel consultation will ensure that you meet these requirements. Make sure you plan ahead, as some vaccines require a series of shots over several weeks.

A travel consultation will help to develop an individualized plan that protects you from the hazards associated with international travel. It may include vaccines, medications, documentation, and information to ensure your health and safety when you reach your travel destination. 

Travel consultations and travel vaccinations are no longer available through the Snohomish Health District. If you are planning international travel, check with your primary care provider to see if travel consultations are available. If not, you can view local resources for travel services.

If you are traveling in developing countries or rural areas, your risk of illness is higher due to differences in living standards and sanitary conditions, food and water safety, and immunization coverage.

Staying healthy while traveling requires planning and preparation. Educate yourself about food and water precautions or harmful insects you may encounter at your travel destinations. Find out how to be ready for emergency situations.
