Tens of thousands of youngsters from all over the world will gather in Texas in the United States of America (USA). This special mass gathering creates specific circumstances, which increase the risk of outbreaks.

VACCINATIONS

The following vaccinations are recommended for this event:

  • Standard vaccinations, based on age
    • Measles-mumps-rubella
    • Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), polio
    • Hepatitis B
  • Additional vaccinations due to the specific circumstances (usually not recommended for travel to the USA)
    • Meningitis ACWY
    • Hepatitis A

OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Implement mosquito-repellent measures to protect against West Nile virus.
  • Pay attention to hand hygiene, due to an increased risk of gastro-intestinal infections at mass gatherings. Always wash your hands after going to the toilet and before eating. If this is not possible, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Bring condoms with you.
  • Keep your distance from wild animals: they could have rabies.
