Frequently asked Questions

Most overseas disease is preventable with vaccines

Philadelphia and New York airports  are the starting point for many international adventures. Planning for your health during your travels is just as important as booking flights and arranging hotels. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 30-60% of international travelers become ill each year as a direct result of international travel – often from diseases that are vaccine-preventable.

Some examples of vaccines that may be recommended for international travelers (remember you may need more, fewer, or different vaccinations, depending on your individual circumstances) include the following:

  • Rabies: Rabies virus is endemic in dogs in many countries throughout the world, including, but not limited to, parts of Thailand, Vietnam, Brazil, China, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia.
  • Typhoid fever: This condition may be contracted in many areas of the world through contaminated drinking water or food or by consuming food or beverages that have been handled by an infected person.
  • Japanese encephalitis:  This condition is transmitted by a flavavirus acquired from the bite of an infected mosquito. It is the most common cause of vaccine-preventable encephalitis in Asia. It is found throughout most of Asia and the western Pacific regions.

Many travelers to tropical countries are concerned about the possibility of contracting malaria, a potentially fatal infection transmitted by the bite of a female Anopheles mosquito. While malaria is most common in Africa, the disease occurs in over 100 countries. While there is no vaccination available to prevent malaria, your doctor can prescribe preventive medications if you are traveling to an at-risk area.
