Question: 

Do one year old need extra vaccines for travelling to Costa Rica if all Canadian vaccines are up to date?

Answer: 

We do not provide travel vaccine recommendations at ImmunizeBC.  We recommend that you contact your health care provider or a travel clinic to find out which vaccines are recommended for your travel destination (for both your one year old and the rest of your family).   You can find a list of travel clinics in BC here

When travelling outside of Canada, your family may be at risk for a number of diseases that are rarely found in Canada but are common in other parts of the world.
