International Travel Immunizations: An Interactive Guide

Posted by on in Travel

At HCC Medical Insurance Services, a big part of what we do involves helping international travelers to prepare for their time abroad. One question in particular tends to come up often: What travel immunizations will I need for my trip? There is plenty of information out there to help travelers understand which shots they will need to stay healthy while visiting their destination, but we kept wondering if there might be an easier way to help people quickly and easily learn about important travel immunizations. In that spirit, we created an interactive map to help travelers pinpoint destinations in South America, Africa and Southeast Asia, to learn which diseases they will need protection against.
