Mary Koslap‐Petraco, DNP, PNPPC‐BC, CPNP, FAANP, Stony Brook University School of Nursing, discusses which vaccines that should be received by infants traveling outside the United States, and at what age they should be administered. This video was filmed at the 2019 National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAP NAP) annual meeting in New Orleans.


Mary KoslapPetraco, DNP, PNPPCBC, CPNP, FAANP: Children 6 months of age or older are going to be traveling outside of the United States. We’re recommending that they get a dose of Hepatitis A vaccine, in addition to getting a dose of Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine, which we have been talking about for about a year or 2 now because of the high incidence of measles outside of the United States, as well as [Hepatitis A]. Now, with the Hepatitis A, that we know that the vaccine works in that age group to prevent Hepatitis A, especially when traveling to Central and South American countries.
