Travel to countries outside of the United States may put you at
greater risk of vaccine preventable diseases. Recommendations for
travelers to Canada, Australia, Japan and Western Europe include a
tetanus containing vaccine, within the past 10 years and the flu
vaccine during the most recent flu season.
There are additional vaccines recommended, and some required, for
travel to Central and South America, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa.
Some of requirements depend on your itinerary. Other recommendations
may be based on the length of stay in other countries and your reason
for travel. See www.cdc.gov/travel for recommendations for your destination.
Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department is a Yellow Fever
vaccine site. We also keep most other vaccines for travelers on hand.
We do not provided antimalarial medications nor prescriptions, but
can advise travelers of the drugs that are recommended for malaria
prevention at their destination.
