Hi Folks,

I have had a full range of Vaccinations form Yellow to the Hep range. I am aware through a former job that some need boosters after a few years.

I have searched the internet and seem to only find sites on initial vaccinations. Not on the time period there after when one needs a booster.

Unfortunately I am in a pretty remote place right now as far as medical information and the doctor is about as good as my own guesses. I am just getting information ready for what I need before moving on.

WHO, unless I am missing something, only list initial vaccinations and mainly just saftey to do with vaccinations.

I am wondering if anyone had a link, to a site giving a list of vaccinations and recommend booster time intervals?

Thanks for any help

OC

P.S. I know there are many vaccinations out there depending on what part of the world you are headed. So in my case, this would have to be global ;)

Hi OC,

This site is pretty good. If you scroll down to the bottom of the page it tells you all about the vaccines and what time frame you need boosters in.

I like the CDC site myself. Below is a good link, but I would recommend going to a proper travel clinic and seeing a travel physician, if available- In addition to vaccinations, you also will need to think about anti-malarials ( which also varies depending on where you go), and other general travel- related precaustions.

Good luck.
