Getting Your Immunizations

We want to fully support each team member well when serving overseas, especially if it is your first time to travel overseas. Up to date immunizations are recommended according to the CDC website for each country. Our goal is for each team member to feel comfortable and completely prepared for their expedition.

Providers for Immunizations

Prices vary greatly among providers so call ahead to learn if there is a base visit fee on top of their individual immunization fees. Also, ask if your personal insurance will cover any immunization costs. Providers can give you a photo copy of your immunizations to keep with you during the expedition. 25 Project recommends taking a photo copy of all your vaccination records and documentation of blood type, allergies, personal health history and current prescriptions in case of emergency.
