Vaccines

Cholera

is rare for travelers, and vaccination is not routinely recommended. It may be considered if you are working in humanitarian settings or visiting friends or family in active transmission areas. Avoiding unsafe food or water and regularly washing your hands is your best bet for staying safe.

Rabies

may be considered if planning activities that involve direct contact with animals or wildlife – ie. wild camping, cave exploring, or fieldwork in rural areas. As a rule, we recommend avoiding interaction with animals – even domestic pets may carry diseases.

Medications

Motion Sickness Medication

will ensure your travels by air, land or sea are more enjoyable without nausea and dizziness tagging along.

Sleep Aids

may be a great addition to your packing list if you struggle with jet lag or sleeplessness due to travel stress or time zone changes.
