It depends on where you plan to study. It’s best to check the CDC (
) or WHO (www.who.int
) websites for immunization
requirements. For example, in Ghana, without yellow fever immunization, you are not permitted to
enter the country. Several other immunizations are also highly recommended for students traveling
to Ghana although not required. It’s best to visit an overseas clinic in the US before your
departure where a medical professional will be able to prescribe the necessary shots and recommend
appropriate medication for your period abroad.
