Vaccination Requirements

Currently there are no required immunizations for travel to China, but check with your local consulate to make sure this policy has not changed. Depending on how long you are staying in China and whether you will be spending your time in urban or rural areas, there are different vaccinations that are recommended by travel health specialists. Discuss your travel needs with a doctor that specializes in travel medicine. Universities often have travel clinics that provide a less expensive way of getting your vaccinations. The most useful vaccinations for China are hepatitis A, hepatitis B, tetanus/diptheria, Japanese encephalitis, and typhoid fever. Some doctors also recommend getting a rabies shot and taking malaria pills.
For up-to-the-minute information on vaccination requirements and disease information, call the International Traveler's Hotline in Atlanta at (404) 332-4559, which is sponsored by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. This service regularly updates its recorded message for each country.

He was a Junkyard Jewel, hidden in trash, forgotten too long until found at last
Junkyard jewel with so much inside, hidden from the rest as a matter of pride
Junkyard jewel you are so beautiful, oh can't you see, oh can't you see...
He was a Junkyard Jewel, hidden in trash, forgotten too long.
