The healthy travel packing list has recommended items to pack as you travel. Often times, it can be more convenient to have these items before traveling. This allows you to be more proactive when first noticing symptoms.
It is imperative that you report any medications and is required by the United States Customs upon return.
Make sure you are up-to-date on routine vaccines before every trip. These vaccines include Hepatitis B, measles mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, polio vaccine, and your yearly flu shot.
Additional vaccinations may be needed depending on where you are traveling. They include Malaria, Yellow fever, Typhoid fever, Rotavirus, Zoster, Japanese Encephalitis, and Rabies. Some types of vaccines have to be ordered and may take several weeks to be in stock. Another important thing to note is immunizations can take up to four weeks for your body to build up immunity. If you do not have a record for your last immunizations, it is safe to get another as a precaution. The recommendation for some vaccination boosters are every five to ten years.
