Travel Vaccinations

This information is about travel vaccinations, a crucial aspect for many individuals, particularly those who are planning to travel internationally. Our objective is to provide clear and concise guidance to aid in understanding the complexities of travel vaccinations, identifying contributing factors to their necessity, and exploring effective strategies for obtaining necessary vaccinations, managing potential side effects, and promoting overall health and well-being during travel.

What are Travel Vaccinations? 

Travel vaccinations are vaccines that help protect travellers from certain infectious diseases that may be prevalent in other countries or regions. These vaccines stimulate the immune system to produce antibodies, providing immunity against specific diseases. 

Travel vaccinations help prevent infectious diseases that travellers may encounter during their trips. The symptoms of these diseases can vary widely depending on the specific illness but may include fever, nausea, diarrhoea, rash, and more severe illness (e.g hepatitis). 

Causes:

The causes of infectious diseases that travel vaccinations protect against vary depending on the destination. Factors contributing to the spread of these diseases may include inadequate sanitation, contaminated food and water, insect bites, and close contact with infected individuals. Other travel related illness may require oral medication daily (e.g. malaria prophylaxis). 

 

Deciding which travel-related infectious diseases you will be at risk of in your planned destination typically involves the type of travel, the destination, your past vaccination history and your general health. Healthcare providers may take blood to check your immune status.
