Immunizations

Although no agency requires proof of immunizations for travel to Jordan, experts strongly recommend that travelers consider taking some precautions. The Center for Disease Control recommends the following vaccines:
·    Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B
·    Rabies
·    Typhoid
·    Booster doses for tetanus-diphtheria, measles, and polio as needed

You should consult with your own health care provider to determine which immunizations you should obtain.  Some immunizations can take at least 4-6 weeks to take effect, so please see your physician in ample time.  If you plan to travel to other countries in the Middle East be sure to check the CDC website to find out if they require immunizations for any of the areas to which you plan to travel. If you think you may be traveling to a country that requires proof of inoculations for entry, you should obtain an International Certificate of Vaccination through the World Health Organization:  (202) 861-3200.
