Thinking About Volunteering in Haiti? Get Your Vaccinations Now.

Before volunteers leave for Haiti, you should already be up to date on
your regular vaccinations such as MMR, DPT, polio, etc., and at
minimum, get vaccinations for:
Tetanus
Hepatitis A
H1N1

All of these vaccinations are normally available from your State for
FREE, and all you have to do is walk into a clinic.

You also should have malaria prophylactics, and if at all possible
typhoid vaccination, which may or may not be available.

For New York, call the New York City Department of Health and Mental
Hygiene’s Immunization Hotline at (212) 676-2323. They’ll give you
your closest clinic. If you say you’re going to Haiti, they’ll say we
don’t do travel vaccinations. Just tell them clearly that you need
these above, and they should tell you where to go.
