Vaccination & Immunization Board Index


Has anyone on the board visited China? If so, what shots did you take before going? I'm concerned if hepatitis shots are needed.
Thanks!:D

You may need to contact a travel clinic with your specific plans to see what you need and what you don't really need. Especially with such a large country, it's hard to get that info without discussing your specific travel plans with somebody who is familiar with risks in various areas.
Hep A & B would be a good thing to get - if you havent had them already. If you're headed to more rural areas, a typhoid vaccination is a good idea. Also in rural areas, especially in the farming community the CDC reccomends getting the pre-exposure Rabies shots and a Japanese Encephalitis vaccination and malaria pills. You should also be up to date on your Tetanus-Diptheria and Measles vaccinations. If you have a Passport Health office near you, they are really good at giving you advice on what you need as well as having all the vaccinations there too.
