Hi.

There is none that you must have to enter the US but as travellers we keep our Hepatitis A and B, Tetanus, Typhoid, and Polio up to date as a matter of course. Mostly for more exotic locations to be honest.

None of those are a requisite for the US, but you can usually get them all free on the NHS, although there is a shortage of a Typhoid at the moment and I can't see that being a problem, Tetanus and Hep if you must have any.

We survived 25 years of visiting the USA without vacinations....including R66.

Unless you will have visited certain African and other countries where Yellow Fever is endemic within 3 months of your USA visit, I don't think you need anything.

Like Valiant, we ensure we are up to date with certain other jabs, but that's for travel elsewhere, at short notice!

Hi, sorry not related to the vaccinations question as thats already been answered for you. But just wondered what dates you were travelling in April. Me and three friends are travelling from the UK and doing route 66 from April 5th.

Hi ktb - this is indeed Tommi's topic, and is focused on vacinations. If you want ot ask questions about your plans and route 66, then you should start your own topic with a title that reflects your plans and the kind of info you seek. Otherwise, if you work out how to use this forum, there's already heaps of great advice for folk wishing to do a R66 trip.
