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.

25 Project cannot recommend which specific immunizations should be taken by team members but provides the essential information provided by the CDC below. We highly recommend personally speaking to your doctor to understand your individual needs or limitations in getting immunizations.
