Preparing for Volunteering Abroad

One of the most common questions we hear from potential volunteers is, What shots or vaccines do we need before traveling to our destination? In many cases, there are no mandatory shots or vaccines, but we always recommend checking with your general practitioner and referencing the US Center for Disease Control' s website. It' s important to be aware of any recommendations that are not necessarily mandatory for entering a specific country. It is also wise to know about your host community' s geographic location. For example, mosquitos may be prevalent in some parts of a country while in other areas with a higher altitude, they may not be a problem at all.
