Health & Safety Precautions

Safety and health precaution:

Suggested Shots / Vaccinations: Here is a list of recommended vaccinations from the Center for Disease Control (www.cdc.gov).

Hepatitis A or immune globulin (IG).

Hepatitis B, if you might be exposed to blood, have sexual contact with the local population, stay longer than 6 months, or be exposed through medical treatment.

Japanese encephalitis, only if you plan to visit rural areas for 4 weeks or more, except under special circumstances, such as a known outbreak of Japanese encephalitis.

Rabies, if you might be exposed to wild or domestic animals through your work or recreation.

Typhoid, particularly if you are visiting developing countries in this region.

As needed, booster doses for tetanus-diphtheria and measles, and a one-time dose of polio for adults. Hepatitis B vaccine is now recommended for all infants and for children ages 11-12 years who did not receive the series as infants.

Diarrhea is often a problem when traveling outside your own country, so it would be wise to bring anti-diarrheal medicine.

We recommend that you drink only bottled water while overseas.

We canít guaranty that you find toilet paper in public bathrooms, so be sure to carry some tissues with you when out shopping or touring.

Travel insurance will not cover injuries which result from intoxication, so keep alcohol consumption to a minimum when enjoying evening outings.

Should the need arise, there will be convenient clinics for minor complaints, and modern hospitals with excellent staffs for more serious conditions.
