Vaccinations Before Coming to South Korea
There are no mandatory vaccinations for entering South Korea, since most people have already received basic childhood vaccinations. If faculty would like to receive optional vaccinations as a precaution, they can ask their healthcare provider for boosters such as Japanese encephalitis, tetanus, Hepatitis A, B (if they do not have antibodies) etc.
