Vaccination Requirements

You will always want to check the CDC site for any vaccination requirements. You can also have your doctor or travel clinic check to be sure there are not any unusual outbreaks. This applies to Haiti or anywhere else you want to go.
Generally, requirements are as follows:
  • Hepatitis A (a shot)
  • Typhoid Vaccine (typically a shot)
  • Anti-Malarial Medication (usually oral medications)
  • Be aware that some of these medications have to be administered a certain number of days before travel, so do not wait for the last minute.
  • Be sure to pack any medications recommended by your physician.
Measles & Standard Immunizations

 

You will want to be sure you are up to date on all standard immunizations. If you are not 100% sure if you are protected against measles there is a blood test to check. If needed you can receive an MMR booster. Try to check this well before getting your Typhoid shot so that one does not diminish the effectiveness of the other.
