Abstract

Travel-related infectious diseases are exceedingly common, difficult to diagnose, and sometimes preventable. Vaccination is one tool for reducing the risk of infectious disease for some travelers. Both healthcare providers and travelers need to be aware of the new travel vaccines, and new formulations of older vaccines that now are available. This article presents an update on vaccines for cholera, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, rotavirus, typhoid, and malaria.
