More than 900 million international trips are taken each year. To inform travelers of disease risks, the World Health Organization (WHO) released an International Travel Health Map.
The interactive, color-coded map displays areas at risk for diseases such as hepatitis A and B, meningococcus, yellow fever, rabies, polio and Japanese encephalitis virus. Users can read about vaccine requirements and recommendations by clicking on the country or area they plan to visit.
Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.
