vaccine info. source for diseases of concern outside US?

A friend is traveling w/ her 9m/o and 3y/o son to Mexico for a wedding in Nov. She's not done many vaccines up until now, as the children were cared for in-home & she prefers to wait till the kids are 2y/o to begin vaxes.
Now, though, she's wanting to research which diseases are rampant in Mexico, so she can decide which vaxes to give between now and Nov.

Where would be a good place to find info like this for locations beyond the US?

the following websites are good. I live in a foreign country, and the risks (depending on where you are) are very real. People in the US don't necessarily understand. Like, Hepatitis for example...pretty rare for a kid at home care to get it in the states...not so here.

Anyway...here you go:
