01.12: Immunizations

When you know the country you’ll be serving in, you will be sent a list of required immunizations which may include a section for recommended/optional immunizations as well. It is each participant’s responsibility to see that they receive the immunizations that are required. You are also encouraged to talk to your family doctor. If you feel you would like to receive immunizations beyond those required, please feel free to do so. 

Immunizations can be expensive. You may request that the cost for required immunizations be included in your program fee. However, this request must be made before your ministry agreement is affirmed. Keep this in mind before approving your ministry agreement.

If you have not received the list of immunizations for the country you will be serving in within two weeks of being approved for assignment, please inform the HR administrative assistant.
