Getting ready for a big trip abroad can be exciting any time of the year, but also extremely stressful, especially if you are traveling with children. What should you pack? How far in advance should you book hotels? These are some of the common questions that people ask themselves before departing on a trip out of the country. One big question that every traveler should also be asking themselves is “Which travel vaccinations should I get?" Getting your vaccinations for traveling in advance is the best way to protect yourself from any viruses or infections that you could possibly pick up while traveling in another country. Yellow fever vaccinations are one of the most common travel vaccinations that people get if they are traveling to a yellow fever endemic area outside of the country. Your doctor will likely let you know if the area that you are going to requires the shot, and when you should get it.
While researching which shots to get can be easy online, actually receiving the shot can be more of stressful activity. Making an appointment months in advance can be a headache, and many clinics and primary care providers require an appointment.
