Before traveling to any country, it is critical that you stay updated on routine vaccinations. While some of the vaccines are only on a recommendation basis, some of them may be required depending on your destination. Each country has different vaccine recommendations based on the current health risks or outbreaks, as well as the factsheets on how to stay healthy while traveling abroad.
