Travel Immunizations

Before traveling abroad, a travel assessment by a trained clinic nurse can provide information and help you identify the best ways to prevent travel-related illnesses. Butte County Public Health offers information about health-related risks while traveling abroad. Ideally, appointments should be scheduled up to 4 to 6 weeks before your trip. Most vaccines take time to become effective in your body and some vaccines must be given in a series over a period of days or sometimes weeks. If it is less than 4 weeks before you leave, you should still consult the public health clinic. You might still benefit from shots or medications and other information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while traveling. Be sure that you and your family are up to date on your routine vaccinations. These vaccines are necessary for protection from diseases that are still common in many parts of the world even though they rarely occur in the United States.
