What vaccines are needed for international travel?
Immunization recommendations vary by country. To find the most up to date recommendations, go to CDC's Travelers' Health website and search by your destination country. In addition, it is recommended that you be up to date with routine immunizations, including the flu vaccine. Talk to your health care provider, pharmacist or local health department about whether you are up to date.
Where can I get travel vaccines?
DHEC does not provide travel vaccine clinics. Search an up-to-date list of Yellow Fever Vaccination Clinics in South Carolina. These clinics usually provide other travel vaccines as well.
For more information about other health-related concerns prior to traveling, go to the CDC’s Traveler’s Health website.
Information for Travel Medicine Clinics:
South Carolina Yellow Fever vaccine providers must receive authorization from DHEC.
