2023 Vaccine Agreement

With the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in sight, Humanitarian Experience will not be requiring the Coronavirus vaccination to participate in a 2023 summer program as we did in 2022. However, as always, we will be complying with the travel guidelines of the areas we visit, so some restrictions/limitations may apply based on location regulations.

Currently, many countries require vaccines (COVID-19 and yellow fever) in order to enter as a tourist. If any vaccines are required by your destination country, you will be subject to that requirement in order to go on your trip.

If requirements for entry change more than 90 days before the start date of your trip, participants may either (a) switch to an alternative trip (b) HumanitarianXP will refund them the entire cost of their trip, less the original non-refundable deposit and any donations (refer to the Money-Back Guarantee clause in the HXP Contingency Plan for further details). If location vaccine requirements change 89 days or less prior to departure, the money-back guarantee is no longer valid, but HXP will try to switch participants to alternative trips based on availability.

Additionally, we strongly encourage every HXP participant to refer to location-specific information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and to consult with a primary care physician or travel clinic to get any other recommended vaccines or medications for travel (such as Malaria pills, typhoid vaccine, and/or a tetanus booster shot).

We respect those who elect not to participate in specific trips because of their aversion to certain vaccines and hope you will find other meaningful ways to serve.
