Immunization is not something to take lightly- especially when you'll be in new environments and away from the comfort and familiarity of home. Often immunizations are not an option, as many countries require them before you can enter. Travel vaccinations make for a smooth trip by preventing reactions to common diseases you're not used to, and those that are less common...and much more serious.

Attention Mission Teams!
Are your team members up-to-date on their tetanus vaccine? If you are traveling outside of North America or Western Europe, more time and consideration are needed to protect your health. Each year, hundreds of thousands of people travel to countries where diseases such as malaria, typhoid, and dengue fever still pose serious threats to the unprotected traveler. In these areas, immunizations are important precautions to safeguard your health. Even if you are traveling within the United States, it is important to have your tetanus vaccine up-to-date!
Make your trip a healthy one by guarding yourself with the proper knowledge and vaccines.
Add immunizations to your packing list, so you don't come back with any unwanted souvenirs!
