4. Schedule a visit with your physician
Another suggested item in preplanning your trip to China is to schedule a visit with your physician. With the exception of a Yellow Fever vaccination if you are visiting from an area that is known to be infected, China does not have any required vaccinations for those entering their country. However, this is a great time for you to schedule a physical and make certain you are healthy enough to travel and update your routine immunizations, such as tetanus, diphtheria, measles, mumps, and rubella. You may also want to get the Hepatitis A immunization if you are planning to travel to more rural areas of China. Check with your physician on any other recommendations he or she may give you.
