Mary Koslap‐Petraco, DNP, PNPPC‐BC, 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.
