the only vax that is ever REQUIRED for travel is yellow fever, and that's only for areas with outbreaks of it.<br>
there's a mama here who travels to india every other year with her dd, and she does get the vax. i hope she'll come by or PM you to talk about it.

Thanks so much for your reply. I figured that the US govt doesn't require certain vax for travel per say but I was wondering about exposure if polio does exist in certain countries. I think it does in India. I have to get concrete info about this from the folks in India too but I am hoping someone who has travelled to countries like INdia might give me some insight.
