Immunizations

The Vanderbilt Travel Clinic is offering the Yellow Fever vaccine and will continue to carry this vaccine through 2018.
In addition, we are now offering the cholera vaccine.

Immunization can reduce your risk of contracting some diseases when traveling. In the U.S. there are routine immunizations that we receive regularly. If you are planning on traveling outside of the U.S., there are specific travel immunizations that are recommended depending upon where and when you will be traveling and what activities you will be doing while there. Not everyone can receive these immunizations. A member of the Vanderbilt Travel Clinic will review your medical history with you to determine which vaccines are safe for you.

Routine vaccines include:

  • Tetanus
  • Diphtheria
  • Flu
  • Varicella
  • Measles, mumps and rubella
  • Polio
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningococcal
  • Pneumococcal

You should be up to date with all of these routine immunizations. Your family health care provider can assist in these immunizations.

Travel vaccines include:

  • Cholera
  • Hepatitis A 
  • Japanese encephalitis
  • Rabies
  • Typhoid
  • Yellow fever (required for travel to certain parts of the world).

A Vanderbilt Travel Clinic Team member will assist you in determining the immunizations that you will need for your trip. The most important factors to consider when determining which vaccines are appropriate for you is your itinerary and the risk of contracting these diseases with your travel plans.
