Summer Holidays Near !

Summer is not far for the travellers who know the importance of travel vaccinations.


As summer approaches, many people are gearing up for vacations and travel to their favorite destinations. While travel can be an exciting and enriching experience, it is important to take the necessary steps to protect your health, especially in popular travel destinations where diseases are prevalent. This is why it is crucial to get travel vaccinations well before embarking on your journey.


Some of the most popular travel destinations such as Brazil, Thailand, India, and Mexico are prone to diseases like Hepatitis A & B, Typhoid Fever, Yellow Fever, and Malaria. These travel vaccinations are necessary to protect your health while abroad. Hepatitis A & B can be spread through contaminated food and water while Typhoid Fever is often contracted through infected drinking water. Yellow Fever is a serious disease carried by mosquitoes which can be fatal. Whilst Malaria can be contracted through infected mosquito bites in certain countries.


Fortunately, there are vaccines available to protect against these diseases. The Hepatitis A & B vaccine is a course of two injections which protects against the virus for at least 25 years. Typhoid Fever vaccine is available as a one-off injection. Yellow Fever vaccine is also a one-off vaccine that provides protection for at least 10 years. Protection against Malaria is provided through anti-malarial medication that needs to be started before entering an infected country and then continued for up to four weeks after leaving.


It is recommended that you start planning for your travel vaccinations at least six to eight weeks before your trip. This is because some vaccines require multiple doses over a period of time to be truly effective, and also because your body needs time to build immunity to the diseases. It's also important to speak to your doctor or travel health clinic to tailor your vaccinations to your individual needs, destinations and itinery.


In conclusion, travel vaccinations play a vital role in protecting your health while abroad. By taking the necessary precautions and getting vaccinated, you can ensure a safe and enjoyable travel experience. Don't take any chances with your health- make sure you get protected before you go.
