Need travel vaccines? Plan ahead.

Planning to travel overseas for Spring Break? Make sure to get the recommended vaccinations for your area of travel. International travel increases your chances of getting and spreading diseases that are rare or not found in United States. Find out which travel vaccines you may need to help you stay healthy on your trip.

Before Travel

Make sure you are up-to-date on all of your routine vaccines. Routine vaccinations protect you from infectious diseases such as measles that can spread quickly in groups of unvaccinated people. Many diseases prevented by routine vaccination are not common in the United States but are still common in other countries. Schedule a routine immunization appointment with THD online or over the phone at 918-582-9355.

Check CDC’s destination pages for travel health information. Check CDC’s webpage for your destination to see what vaccines or medicines you may need and what diseases or health risks are a concern at your destination.

Where can I get travel vaccines?

You may be able to get some travel vaccines from your primary healthcare provider. Otherwise, Passport Health in Broken Arrow offers these overseas vaccination services in Tulsa County.
