Do you need vaccinations for Florida?
About 6-8 weeks before you travel it's best to contact your GP and/or nurse for any specific advice. There are no specific vaccinations required for travel to the USA, and no Florida immunisations requirements specifically.
However, you may want to consider the following before travelling. Firstly it's wise to check that all your current immunisations are up to date. This may include booster injections for Tetanus for example. As previously mentioned your GP will be able to tell you if you do need vaccinations for travel to Florida. In some cases these vaccinations or boosters may incur a charge. In certain circumstances you may be required to best a private clinic for the immunisations, which is why we recommend checking 6-8 weeks before travel.
If you are travelling with little ones you need to check their vaccines are up to date. Our advice would be to check with your GP what vaccines for children travelling to Florida need to be up to date.
Furthermore, you need to consider any other travel you may be undertaking on your trip to Florida. Are you planning on visiting any other countries on the same trip? If so, as well as ensuring you've checked if you need vaccinations for Florida you also need to ensure you’ve checked you are fully immunised for any other country you may visit.
