When planning a trip the last thing you want to think about is getting sick. Many of the diseases contracted while traveling are preventable. Immunizations are the best way to protect yourself from contracting a serious illness while traveling.
There are three types of immunizations: routine, required, and recommended, Routine immunizations should be given to all adults every 10 years, whether or not they are traveling.
Required immunizations are given to travelers entering certain countries. These countries require proof of immunization from your travel clinic before you can enter the country.
Recommended immunizations vary based on your travel destination, planned activities, and health status. Kohll’s Pharmacists can assess your risk level and recommend the necessary immunizations. We offer the following travel immunizations:

Timeline for receiving your travel immunizations…
The World Health Organization recommends that travelers consult a travel vaccination clinic at least 4-6 weeks before departure. Kohll’s recommends being vaccinated up to 6 months prior to your trip. Some vaccinations can take this long to complete.
