Traveling to Another Country?
To find out more about what vaccines you may need for travel to a specific country, visit the CDC's travel information website:
Travelers' Health: http://www.cdc.gov/travel/vaccinat.htm
Although Marquette County Health Department does not provide travel vaccines such as malaria, yellow Fever or typhoid, we may provide some vaccines you need to travel at a lower cost. Vaccines such as Hepatitis A, Tdap, Influenza are often recommended for travel and may be available at lower cost at the Health Department especially for those who are uninsured. Travel vaccines are available at certain primary care providers in Marquette County. The nearest Health Department providing travel vaccines is the Western Upper Peninsula Health Department in Hancock, Michigan.
See your physician at least 4–6 weeks before your trip to allow time for shots to take effect. If it is less than 4 weeks before you leave, you should still see your doctor. It might not be too late to get your shots or medications as well as other information about how to protect yourself from illness and injury while traveling.
