Travel Vaccinations

When you’re travelling overseas, you need to be aware of the risk of contracting certain diseases and the steps you need to take to protect yourself from them. Travel Vaccinations are critical for your health and safety. Many countries even require you to provide evidence of your vaccinations to be allowed to enter or exit their borders. So, before you travel, make sure you’re up to date on all the required Travel Vaccines.

Some of the most common Travel Vaccinations include hepatitis-B, chickenpox, typhoid fever, measles, and the flu. But, depending on your destination, there may be other vaccinations such as Prophylaxis that you might be required to get. Prophylaxis is a vaccine for malaria and will typically involve taking medication before, during and after your trip. For more information on this, please talk to your doctor and he will be able to explain the process in more detail.
