    Routine Vaccines

    Routine Vaccines

    • Routine vaccines are those that are recommended for everyone in the United States, depending on age and your vaccine history, such as:
      • Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis)
      • Pneumococcal
      • Shingles / chickenpox
      • HPV (Human Papillomavirus)
      • MMR (Measles, Mumps, & Rubella)
      • Polio
    • You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel.
    • Why are routine vaccines important for travelers?
      • Because of good vaccine coverage of children in the United States, some of the diseases prevented by routine vaccines rarely occur here.
      • However, these diseases can be much more common in other countries, even in areas where you wouldn’t normally worry about travel-related illnesses.
      • Being up-to-date on your routine vaccines will give you the best protection against these illnesses.

    See our page: immunization for CDC recommendations for adults and children.
