Travel vaccines - safe while breastfeeding?

Is it okay for a breastfeeding mother of a 3-month-old baby to have foreign travel vaccines (Hep. A, Typhoid, Tetanus and Oral Polio)?

Breastfeeding does not adversely affect immunization and is not a contraindication to the administration of any vaccines, including live virus vaccines, for breastfeeding women. Neither inactivated nor live virus vaccines affect the safety of breastfeeding for mothers or infants.
