"Vaccinations"...should we get them for China?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are leaving in 6 weeks for a 3 week group tour of China.
(going with 'Tauck'...group of about 30 people)

It's my understanding that 'proof of vaccinations' is NOT required for
entry into China...is this accurate? (The ONLY documents required are
Passports and Visas according to my tour operator)

I've heard stories of people who chose not to get any vaccinations and
had no repercussions while traveling throughout China. Then, I visited with two people today at my office who took every vaccination that was reccomended by their 'travel clinic' (didn't know there was such a thing) and both got sick as dogs during their trip.

What to do??? One of my favorite quotes is: "An ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure," so I'm tempted to get at least 'something.' However, my wife is
not crazy about getting vaccinations and fears she might get sick from simply taking the shots. She wants to roll the dice.

Those of you who have experience traveling China, your advice and counsel regarding vaccinations would be appreciated.

Tks,
Rock
