Re: shots needed for international travel?

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.
