IMPORTANT VACCINE UPDATE: Even though the country of Mozambique does not require a Yellow Fever vaccine for entry, the Ministry of Health, who we work, requires team members to have the Yellow Fever vaccine. This vaccine can be difficult to get from your local health department, so contact them immediately. The Yellow Fever vaccine is currently valid for 10 years.
One of the first things you have to be aware of on any international trip is the necessary vaccines. Some of the vaccines are hard to get in a quick time frame. Please make sure you read and check the CDC website for information on vaccines immediately.
As we travel internationally, we may be exposed to certain diseases that are rare in the United States. Fortunately, the risk of catching these diseases is still quite low since we will be on site for only a short time and will be eating properly prepared food, etc. However, since it is impossible to eliminate all risk, there are a variety of vaccines and immunizations that provide prevention against many of the most serious infectious diseases in the world that we ask each delegation member consider receiving.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website www.cdc.gov, measles ad polio vaccines should be up-to-date as well as all routine immunizations. Please refer to the following CDC website for information.
