As a general rule, most of the recommended vaccines can be used if the risk of infection is high. However, a careful risk-benefit analysis is required for each individual and vaccination decisions should be made in collaboration with a healthcare professional.
|COVID 19||(PFIZER and MODERNA)Recommended if indicated.|
|DTaP||Recommended if indicated|
|Hepatitis A||Recommended if indicated|
|Hepatitis B||Recommended in some circumstances|
|Influenza (inactivated)||Recommended if indicated|
|Japanese encephalitis||Inadequate data for specific recommendation|
|Meningococcal ACWY||May be used if indicated|

Pregnant women should avoid vaccines that contain live viruses, such as those against smallpox or measles. In addition, malaria may be worse in pregnant women and increase the risk of pregnancy complications. Although there is no malaria vaccine, women should take malaria medication before taking the trip and take special precautions to prevent mosquito bites.
